Defend Girls

Defend Girls

In February 2020, MP Cathay Wagantall introduced her private member’s bill, the Sex Selective Abortion Act. This bill would make it illegal to abort a child based solely on his or her predicted sex. We are excited about this opportunity to engage Canadians in this important discussion about restrictions on abortion! Talk to your neighbours, colleagues, friends and MP about Canada’s lack of abortion laws, and the need for a law. With your help, we can work toward a law that equally values men and women from the earliest stages.

Polls show that the majority of Canadians are opposed to sex-selective abortion. This is a cause that unites Canadians: sex selective abortion is wrong.
