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?
