Le Collège des médecins announces in this article that it is against every law that has anything to do with fetuses or pregnancy currently on the table in Parliament. This according to Yves Robert, secretary of Le Collège des médecins:
Besides Bill C-484, the organization also denounces three other federal bills: C-338; C-537; C-543, which all run along a similar vein.
Bill C-338 would criminalize abortion after 20 weeks of gestation, other than in cases where the woman is suffering from (mental) health problems or if the fetus has been diagnosed with severe defects.
Bill C-537 has to do with the right of conscience of health care professionals. It allows then to refuse to participate in medical procedures which run contrary to their religious beliefs or their belief of the sanctity of human life.
Bill C-543 attempts to make the pregnancy of a victim of a violent attack an aggravated circumstance of the crime.
All of these are private bills. Bills C-484 and C-537 were put forth by Conservative members from out west. Bills C-338 and C-543 are the work of Ontario Liberals…
Mr. Robert would ask all members of Parliament to vote against these bills.
Apparently, he has some concerns about doctors being held liable if harm comes upon an unborn child. He must wonder how anyone practices medicine at all in those other civilized countries with all those pesky laws!by
