Quebec Assembly votes – Abortion ‘ambiguity’ must end

The Quebec legislature has taken aim at the Harper government over abortion and demanded a clear expression of support for a woman’s right to choose.With that, a debate that remained largely dormant in national politics for over two decades suddenly threatens to become a federal-provincial issue.Politicians on both sides of the legislature unanimously adopted, by a margin of 109-0, a pro-choice motion Wednesday.The motion demands that the federal government continue to respect free access to abortion, end its “ambiguity” on the issue and stop cutting funding to women’s groups that favour abortion.
