Communiqué: CACSW Finds Federal Abortion Legislation Unconstitutional (Press Release)


A 1989 press release from the Canadian Advisory Council on the Status of Women (CACSW)/Conseil consultatif canadien sur la situation de la femme (CCCSF) states that the proposed federal legislation on abortion is unconstitutional and should be withdrawn. It cites several serious flaws in the Bill based on a legal option provided by Suzanne Boivin, including violations of sections 7, 15, and 28 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. President Glenda Sims calls on women and equality-seeking groups to make their voices heard.
