The "Unborn Victims of Crime Act" is scheduled for debate on Feb 29 with a Parliamentary vote on March 5. This bill would give fetuses personhood, and it has a chance of passing. Not only is it a foot-in-the-door to recriminalize abortion, it would also endanger the rights of all pregnant women, and violate women's equality rights in general. Please check out our 14 Talking Points on the dangers of this bill: www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/unborn-victims-act.htm
