ARCC opposes Bill C-233 that would ban sex selection abortion

In February 2020, Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall introduced private member’s Bill C-233  under the pretense of fighting gender discrimination. The bill would criminalize sex selective abortion if that is the only reason for an abortion, and sentence providers to up to five years in jail.

ARCC opposes this bill for the reasons outlined in this document (PDF).

We have asked members of Parliament to speak against Bill C-233 at second reading and to vote against it.
