How MPs Voted on C225

How MPs Voted on C225

On Wednesday, October 19, Canadian MPs were asked to vote that Bill C-225 be “read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights”. Regrettably, 209 MPs that evening chose to deny justice to the family of Cassie Kaake and her pre-born daughter, Molly.

Many of you have joined the efforts of the Molly Matters campaign these past several months. Thousands of Canadians rallied together to support the families of Cassie and Molly and the private member’s bill of MP Cathay Wagantall (C-225), signatures were gathered and individuals were mobilized in a renewed effort to see whether Canadian Parliament would finally acknowledge the lives of pre-born victims of crime. Thank you for all you did to ensure the story of Cassie and Molly was heard across this country.

We persevere in our efforts, and one way we do that is by continuing the conversation that began many months ago. Below you will see an alphabetical listing of how MPs voted on C-225 and we encourage you to write a letter in response (scroll down for sample letters). Note: those who were absent or did not vote, are not listed below (52 MPs did not vote, or were absent from the house), however you are encouraged to send them an email inquiring how they would have voted.

Sample Letters

 

 

Voted against Bill C-225:

Dear [MP Name],

I was very disappointed to hear that you voted against Bill C-225, also known as Cassie and Molly’s Law. This vote would have simply moved discussion of Bill C-225 to the committee stage, yet you could not find it in your heart to allow this, out of fear that the abortion debate might be re-opened.

C-225 was drafted to extend the Criminal Code protection to “wanted” pre-born children in Canada, who are now left vulnerable to all degrees of violence with no sanction in our justice system. Your “no” vote was a direct statement to pregnant women that their wanted pregnancies are of no concern to you.

Please know that I, along with the other seventy per cent of Canadians who favoured Molly’s Law, will continue to fight for a law that protects pregnant women and their pre-born children.

Sincerely,

[Name]

 

Voted in favour of Bill C-225:

Dear [MP Name],

Thank you for voting in favour of Bill C-225! Although the vote did not pass, I am thankful that you stood up for Cassie and Molly; indeed for all pregnant women and their pre-born children. It is encouraging that our representative in the House of Commons is willing to speak for vulnerable Canadians and to know that pregnant women and their wanted pre-born children matter to you.

Please know that I, along with the other seventy per cent of Canadians who favoured Molly’s Law, will continue to fight for a law that protects pregnant women and their pre-born children. Thank you for the work that you do!

Sincerely,

[Name]

 

Did not vote or was absent from the house:

Dear [MP Name},

I noticed that you did not vote on Bill C-225, or Cassie and Molly’s law. As your constituent, I am interested to know whether or not you would have supported it. C-225 was drafted to extend the Criminal Code protection to “wanted” pre-born children in Canada, who are now left vulnerable to all degrees of violence with no sanction in our justice system.

Please know that I, along with the other seventy per cent of Canadians who favoured Molly’s Law, will continue to fight for a law that protects pregnant women and their pre-born children. Thank you for the work that you do!

Sincerely,

[Name]
