On January 28, 2013, Canada will celebrate 25 years of reproductive freedom. Since our Supreme Court struck down Canada's abortion law in 1988, our country's experience is proof that laws against abortion are unnecessary.

Rona Ambrose, Minister for Status of Women, voted in September to support the anti-choice Motion 312 in order to "raise concern about discrimination by sex-selection abortion." While the motion was defeated, it received support from a majority of the Conservative caucus -- including 10 cabinet ministers and long-time anti-choice activist Jason Kenney. It also became a launching pad for anti-choice Motion 408 (M408), which will be debated in Parliament in March.
