OTTAWA, November 21, 2003 ( – Canadian Alliance MP Garry Breitkreuz (Yorkton-Melville), has released a petition requesting that Parliament support this motion calling for a “Women’s Right to Know Act” when it is debated and voted on in Parliament.

The legislation would guarantee that all women considering an abortion would be given complete information by their physician about all the risks of the procedure before being referred for an abortion. It also sets penalties for physicians who perform an abortion without the informed consent of the mother or perform an abortion that is not medically necessary for the purpose of maintaining health, preventing disease or diagnosing or treating an injury, illness or disability in accordance with the Canada Health Act.  See the petition online at:
