Trudeau declared that Canada would defend the right of women to abortion
OTTAWA, January 11. /TASS/. The canadian government will continue to defend women’s right to abortion. On this January 10 Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, speaking at city hall, Hamilton (Ontario).
“Women have fought for generations for the right to control their bodies, to have a choice what they do with it, he said. — Protection of rights and freedoms — this is my internal core, is the core of what is Canada.”
Trudeau said that he categorically opposes “any actions aimed at limiting the rights of women”. The Prime Minister added that actions that aim to ban abortion in Canada “do not match lines [liberal] government, and, frankly, our whole society”.
As noted by the Global News broadcaster, this statement Trudeau has made for the background of the dissatisfaction of a number of organizations and the opposition Conservative party, which opposed the initiative of the current government stop funding for employers in the framework of the national program for hiring summer students if they “don’t respect women’s right to abortion.”
Since 1988, abortion was permitted in Canada by the Supreme court.
