HOW SHOULD I VOTE ON BILL C-233?
Bill C-233 would amend the Criminal Code to prohibit a medical practitioner from performing a sex-selective abortion. Please review the bill here and complete a quick form below to let me know how you want me, your MP, to vote on this proposed legislation.
This enactment amends the Criminal Code to make it an offence for a medical practitioner to perform an abortion knowing that the abortion is sought solely on the grounds of the child’s genetic sex. It also requires the Minister of Health, after consultation with representatives of the provincial governments responsible for health, to establish guidelines respecting information provided by a medical practitioner in relation to a request for an abortion.
