Original language of petition: English
Our government understands the deeply disturbing nature of graphic images portraying allegedly aborted fetuses. The freedom to express one’s viewpoint on social policy issues is protected by the Charter (section 2(b)). Freedom of peaceful assembly is also a Charter right (section 2(c)) and includes the right to participate in peaceful protests. The Government is committed to respecting Charter rights and values.
Measures to impose limitations on graphic images and content used in protests or in materials delivered to personal residences fall within provincial and territorial jurisdiction and that of their respective municipalities.
All women in Canada have the right to safe and consistent access to reproductive health services and our government will always support that.
