This morning, wearing my EFC hat, I asked Members of Parliament to condemn sex-selection abortions:
Dear Member of Parliament,
Today is International Women’s Day. Today is a global day to celebrate the “economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.” It is a day that “honours the work of the suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.”
Inequity continues to exist in Canada. Before girls and women even have an opportunity to go to school, to vote, to choose if and where they will study and work, if and with whom they will fall in love and spend their lives with, they are being aborted simply because of their gender.
