On April 26th, on the floor of the House of Commons, the rights of over 1/2 of this country's citizens will be placed on the table in a motion to "study" whether that block of citizens should have their inalienable human rights stripped away.
No matter how you interpret Motion 312, in this century, in an age where we have spent countless lives in the struggle to progress human rights, the women of this country, without their consent, are to have their right to choose a medical procedure debated.
Stephen Woodworth, a right-wing, religiously motivated, Harper Conservative male back-bencher, is going to have at Canadian women.
All Canadian women.
He would like to discuss when "life begins" and would like to strike a special parliamentary committee to investigate that "issue".
Not one of the members of such a committee would be a scientist or a bona fide physician, but you can bet that most of them would come from male-dominated "churches", the likes of which promote the subjugation of women by laying claim over their reproductive organs.
In this century, in this supposedly enlightened age, we are allowing a bunch of superstitious males to bring their religious beliefs into the secular environment of Parliament to seek the "answers" to "questions" which they could find at any walk-in medical clinic.
It goes beyond disgusting. It is dangerous in the extreme.
The reproductive organs of every human in this country belong to the individual. The immorality of placing them on the table for debate should sicken you.
