Removal of 'Black' & 'White' Pro-Life Sign
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
This is a sign downtown North Bay, Ontario. This is more than a ‘black’ and ‘white’ issue; myself and many others cringe every time we have to walk past it. Forced to look at propaganda going against our own country’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The case involving Morgentaler in 1988 ruled, striking down Canada’s abortion law an unconstitutional, opening access to the procedure across the country. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms allows any law found to contravene these rights can be struck down as invalid. A poll in the 80’s indicated (via Gallup) that 72% of Canadian’s believe the decision to abort should lie solely with the pregnant women and her doctor. Progressive as people, this number has largely remained the same, if not increased. This sign downtown North Bay denies the existent of these Charter rights. The majority of people are okay with the pregnancy help center downtown; but it’s biased and will leave many women without help (ie. Fear of wanting an abortion as a solution). Canada should provide non-biased pregnancy help centers to women in need, otherwise women will help themselves. This is what the current legislation is supposed to protect. Please sign the petition to remove this sign from the building. I will personally be going to city hall with signatures, while attempting to remove this sign with the city. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/abortion-rights-significant-moments-in-canadian-history-1.787212
