Canada is the only country in the world with complete, unfettered access to pregnancy on demand. Incredibly, there are no laws at all on the books to regulate pregnancy.
In Canada, a woman of any age, even as young as 12, has access to pregnancy. There are no age restrictions whatsoever.
And there is absolutely no requirement for parental consent. Every year, thousands of young women have pregnancies. Without their parents’ consent, or even knowledge in many cases.
To add even more potential injury to these young women, there is absolutely no requirement for counselling of any kind.
Do they know what they are getting into? Are they aware of the risks? (See sidebar: Ten reasons to avoid pregnancy.)
Pregancy hurts women. We at Birth Pangs aim to educate women about the TRUTH of pregnancy. We will provide scientific proof that pregnancy hurts women. While we know that no one in her right mind chooses pregnancy, we respect that sometimes shit happens.
We at Birth Pangs are working towards an end to pregnancy in Canada, but for the foreseeable future, our more practical goal is to reduce the number of pregnancies in Canada.
Everyone can agree that reducing pregnancies is a good thing. Pregnancy is always dangerous and never necessary.
