Canada needs an International Standards Abortion Law.
We need to get in line with every other democracy in the world by recognizing the human rights interests of pre-born children.
An International Standards law would accomplish this by regulating abortion after 13 weeks. Prior to 13 weeks, it would ensure free access to counseling and support for all women facing an unplanned pregnancy.
has a law that bans abortion after 12 weeks gestation. In cases of fetal impairment there is an exception, but only up to twenty-two weeks. If that is the reason then two specialists, other than the doctor performing the abortion, must certify that the child would suffer from severe physical or mental defects.
allows abortions on request until 12 weeks provided the woman receives proper counselling three days before the procedure. The state-regulated counselling is required to inform the woman that the pre-born have a right to life and try to convince her to continue her pregnancy.
has an abortion law which protects pre-born humans after 12 weeks gestation. The only exceptions are if the “pregnancy poses a grave danger to the woman’s health or there is a strong probability that the expected child will suffer from a particularly severe illness recognized as incurable.”
