Welcome to the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada

The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada (ARCC) is the only nation-wide political pro-choice group devoted to ensuring abortion rights and access for women. We formed in October 2005 to carry out political and educational work to support reproductive rights and health.

ARCC is Canada’s “voice for choice.” Check out our Vision and Mandate for more about what we stand for and what we do.

Our diverse coalition consists of pro-choice groups and individuals across Canada working to represent all Canadian women.

March 4, 2016 - ARCC Cannot Support Bill C-225 - A new Private Member's bill would make it a separate offence to injure or kill a fetus during a crime against a pregnant woman.

Here's our main position statement, and a comparison of Bill C-225 with previous Bill C-484.
