The following is a phone script relating to Bill C-233, the Sex Selective Abortion act. Please ensure a respectful and encouraging tone as you ask your representative to take a stand against sex selective abortion.
Many phone calls will get an answering machine, in which case you can simply say the script as-is, or adapt and personalize it. You may also get an office staff member on the phone who will take your message and relay it to your representative.
Sex selective abortion has no place in Canada. It suggests that one sex is better than another and allows families to abort a child because they wanted the other sex. This should not happen in a country that values everyone no matter what their sex.

Thank you for your work. If you would like to talk further about this, I can be reached at (…) …-…..
