e-3016 (Justice)

Initiated by Jakki Jeffs from Guelph, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

  • Parliament's most basic duty is to protect innocent human life, and scientific evidence puts it beyond doubt that each new human life has an identifiable biological beginning;
  • The abortion law of 1969 withdrew legal protection from children before birth that they had previously enjoyed; and
  • Since that time, there has been no law at all protecting the lives of children before birth in Canada.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to enact legislation granting full legal protection to children before birth by defining the "child" not yet born as a human being from the beginning of his or her biological development.
