Sex Selective Abortion

Support the sex-selective abortion ban bill!

 

On February 26, 2020, Cathay Wagantall (Member of Parliament for Yorkton-Melville) table Bill C-233 "The Sex-Selective Abortion Act". 

We, the undersigned residents of Canada draw the attention of the Parliament of Canada to the following:

Whereas, sex selection abortion is legal as Canada has no legal restrictions on abortion;

Whereas, sex selective abortion is antithetical to our commitment to equality between men and women;

Whereas, a 2019 DART & Maru/Blue poll showed that 84% of Canadians believe it should be illegal to have an abortion if the family does not want the child to be a certain sex;

Whereas, international organizations including the World Health Organization, United Nations Women, and United Nations Children’s Fund have identified unequal sex ratios at birth as a growing problem internationally;

Whereas, Canada’s health care profession recognizes sex selection as a problem;

Therefore, we, the undersigned petitioners, call upon Parliament of Canada to:

pass Bill C-233, the Sex-Selective Abortion Act.
