Tell the Bush administration to keep its word and stop efforts to redefine "abortion" to include birth control.

The Bush administration promised not to issue any new regulations after November 1. But now it's poised to implement a rule that could allow individual health care providers to redefine abortion to include the most common forms of birth control — and then refuse to provide these basic services. A woman's ability to manage her own health care is at risk of being compromised by politics and ideology. We need you to speak out now, before the administration implements this rule. If they move forward with it, it could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women's access to basic reproductive health services.

I wish I was allowed to sign a message to President Bush urging him to keep his word and withdraw this disastrous proposal, but since I can't, you, my American friends, definitely should add your voices to the cause. Click here to sign the message. Tell President Bush: Keep your word. Stop the attack on women's health.

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.

Here's a copy of an email that I received this morning:
"Any one interested in organizing around Bill C-484 (the "Foetal Homicide Bill") will likely be interested in knowing that the next OCAC (Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics) meeting will occur on Monday, April 21 @ 7 pm at Trinity St. Paul's United Church near Spadina subway station. The room used will be determined by the turnout, so please look for signs upon entering the church to direct you to appropriate room.

I will be there, will you?
