LEAF celebrates the 203-91 defeat of Motion 312, the backbencher bill that sought to reopen the abortion debate.

LEAF was honoured to offer our support to the important work of the Abortion Rights Coalition Canada in rallying individuals and organization across the country to unite in opposition to this regressive proposal. We congratulate and thank ARCC-CDAC for their contributions to the defeat of Motion 312.

The motion and surrounding debate remind us of our need to be ever vigilant in ensuring we not only continue to advance women’s equality, but also that we protect our current hard-won rights.
