Bill C-510 is the new private member’s bill about punishing coerced abortion. Here’s some good information about it from the top-notch legal minds at the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.
Meanwhile, over at the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, a call to ban coerced childbirth from Joyce Arthur. Two thoughts on this: One–it’s good she can identify there’s a child there, it’s “childbirth” not “fetusbirth” or “gosh darn it what IS that thing birth.” Secondly–the thought occured to me that perhaps she doesn’t know what causes childbirth. Someone get this woman a briefing on the birds and the bees! (Over 100,000 abortions annually in Canada, most to all abortions are not the result of coerced sex.)
