Every girl deserves a chance at life. Sex selective abortion is wrong. The majority of Canadians agree that using abortion for sex selection is wrong, yet Canada’s lack of abortion laws allows this practice to continue. Girls are aborted at a higher rate than boys simply because they are girls. In a country that claims to value equality, this is unacceptable. Standing up for the equal rights of women includes standing up for their right to be born. On June 2, 2021, Parliament voted against the Sex Selective Abortive Act (Bill C-233) in a vote of 248 – 82. That means the bill will not be studied by a committee or become law, and girls will continue to be aborted for simply being girls. It is time for Parliament to take a stand by making sex selective abortion illegal. Get involved to end this practice in Canada.
