The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada is holding a Day of Action for women’s rights

There are rallies in Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.

From ARCC leaflet:


Women’s reproductive rights are under threat. Before Parliament was dissolved, a series of Private Members’ Bills were introduced that sought to chip away at a woman’s right to choose. Last spring, all but four Conservative MPs voted in favour of Bill C-484 – The Unborn Victims of Crime Act, which would have moved us toward the re-criminalization of abortion.
