Mr. Bill Tupper (Nepean-Carleton):
Mr. Speaker, I have the pleasure this morning to present a petition signed by several tens of persons from eastern Canada. This petition addresses the striking down of Section 251 of the Criminal Code of Canada, which has left Canadians without any law restricting abortions.
The petition addresses the fact that nothing in the Supreme Court decision has established abortion as a right. Furthermore, it addresses the fact that human life is a continuum from the moment of conception to the moment of death and that there is no point in time between conception and the birth of an infant at which point we could say that this is not a human life.
Topic: PROTECTION OF RIGHTS OF THE UNBORN
