Abortion Politics in Canada

My neighbor sent me a link to a petition, which I’m passing on to my Canadian readers:

Stop Bill C-484. Called the “Unborn Victims of Crime Act,” it allows charges to be laid in certain cases where a fetus dies. While it’s expressed purpose is law-and-order politics, it also opens the legal door for anti-abortion activists. That door has been shut for over 20 years in Canada and we should keep it that way. I urge the Canadians to sign. I signed, but if they were to look, I’m not (yet) a voter. More important, probably, are the letters you can use to contact your MP and the Liberal party, who could easily kill this measure as official opposition if they wanted to.
