I just received an e-blast from Physicians for Life that clearly explains what’s happening with M-408 and what you can do.
UPDATE: Mark Warawa is appealing the non-votability decision on M-408 to the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC) this Wednesday at 3:30 pm.
In addition to the emails you have been sending to your MP and letters to the editor of your local/national papers, there are some other ways you can respond:
[Edit: Contact Members of Parliament and the Prime Minister.] It’s always best to craft your own brief note.
You can also use a fantastic tool for writing to your MP and the MPs involved in this issue at the WeNeedALaw site. The form finds your MP’s contact information based on your postal code. Click here to send a customizable email.
Second – write or call your own MP and the Prime Minister’s Office: 613.992.4211. When you call, you will be able to say that you are calling regarding Motion 408. You will be redirected to a voice message system, where you can leave a message with your title, name, and a polite message indicating that sex-selection abortion is an issue that concerns you.
Third – if you are a Twitter user, you can tweet about it using the hashtag #M408. You can also let @MPmarkwarawa know that you support the fight against female feticide, and communicate with the following key people in the M408 conversation:
@CraigScottNDP (on the subcommittee that blocked M408)
@Armstrong_MP (on the subcommittee that blocked M408)
@ScottReidCPC (on the subcommittee that blocked M408)
