This is in response to Bill C-484, or the ‘Unborn Victims of Violence*’ bill, being proposed by Harper Conservative Governmentâ„¢ member Ken Epp.
This bill claims to be about choice. However, this law is about establishing the foetus as a separate and autonomous entity from the mother. The necessary step in re-criminalizing abortion and by extension the doctors and women who exercise that choice.
Raymond Gravel, a Bloc MP and a priest said;
he was â€œuncomfortableâ€ with the bill â€œbecause the member putting it forward is part of a pro-life group, the Campaign Life Coalition, which in my view is a rather extreme fanatical group, when it comes to life.â€

*now being referred to as the Unborn Victims of Crime bill.
