Criminalizing abortion: Harper pursues backdoor
(CUPE.ca) -- M-312 is a private member’s motion introduced by Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth that, if passed, would strike a parliamentary committee to study changing the criminal code definition of the “human beings”. This is a back-door attempt to allow the re-criminalization of abortion in Canada.
CUPE has a proud history of advocating for women’s rights in our workplaces and society.
CUPE encourages its divisions and locals to make connections with activists at the local level to lobby members of Parliament to vote against M-312 and to help make the public aware of the importance of reproductive freedom to women’s empowerment and human rights.
