The "Unborn Victims of Crime Act" (C-484) has already passed Second Reading in Parliament (March 5th). It's meant to amend the Criminal Code, in order to allow separate homicide charges to be laid in the death of a foetus when a pregnant woman is attacked. If it passes, the bill will be an unconstitutional infringement on women’s rights, and would likely result in harms against pregnant women. Not only is it a key step toward the re-criminalizing abortion, but it could also help to criminalize pregnant women for behaviours perceived to harm their foetuses.
