Steven Harper really enjoys floating trial balloons through his back benches. Another preemptive volley from the western conservative black hole of politics has made it the media. The poll, of course, has been skewed by the screwball forced birth advocating religious right in Canada so ignore the results. However, one comment on the poll caught my attention and thus is reproduced here.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruling on the Morgentaler appeal in 1988 confirmed as Chief Justice Brian Dickson wrote:
“Forcing a woman, by threat of criminal sanction, to carry a fetus to term unless she meets certain criteria unrelated to her own priorities and aspirations, is a profound interference with a woman’s body and thus a violation of her security of the person.”
This confirmed a woman’s Charter right to choose.
It has served us well over the last 25 years and the notion of creating a new law is only to serve the interests of those who will *never* accept a woman’s right over her own body.
My thoughts exactly. You can frack-off forever my forced birth advocating friends, women are treated as people here in Canada, get used to it.
