The Science


Take Action



On May 14, 1969, Canada's abortion law was liberalized with the passage of the Pierre Trudeau government's Omnibus Bill 150. Abortion remained a crime, but exceptions were permitted. Therapeutic abortion committees were established and abortion was only permitted in hospitals.

On January 28, 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down Canada’s only abortion law. Since that ruling, induced abortion has been available on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy up to the moment of delivery for any or no reason. For more detailed information go here.

Section 223 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada states: A child becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother, whether or not
a) it has breathed;
b) it has independent circulation; or
c) the navel string is severed.

Below are the results of legal abortion in Canada:

● Over 3 million pre-born Canadian children have lost their lives to abortion since May 14, 1969*
● Abortion is legally available throughout all nine months of pregnancy
● 300 abortions occur everyday in Canada*
● 1 in 3 women undergoing abortion have already had one or more*
● 17% of abortions are performed on girls between 10 and 19 years of age*
● Post-abortive women are at greater risk of psychiatric problems during the 3-month period following the abortion **

Establishing the personhood of the unborn does not mean we are ignoring the personhood of the mother.
