We need C-484 really bad!

Here's a question for all you women out there. Imagine that you were pregnant and wanted to keep your baby. Your boyfriend disagrees and wants you to abort. According to "pro-choice" principles, it should be your decision, right? After all, you're the one carrying the baby.

Now imagine that your boyfriend secretly feeds you a pill that causes you to have a miscarriage. It starts off as stomach cramps, but when you get to the emergency ward you lose the baby. Your boyfriend killed the baby that you wanted so dearly.

Now suppose that the courts had no regard for the fact that you lost your baby. They don't care about your baby or about your feelings. Your boyfriend is simply charged with aggravated assault and administering a toxic substance. No consideration is given to your child.

Would you call that a pro-choice society that respects your choice to keep your baby?

As you probably guessed, this is not an imaginary scenario. It happenend in Montreal just a few years ago. Read the story yourself at CBC's website:

This wouldn't happen if we had a law like Bill C-484 that would make it a separate crime for an abusive boyfriend to take away your unborn baby.

Tell your MP that Canada needs this law in order to advance women's rights.

Don't listen to those pseudo-feminists out there who claim that Bill C-484 will imperil a woman's right to have an abortion. This is not about abortion. It's about a woman's right to choose to keep her baby. Ignore those fanatics and tell your MP to support C-484.
