MPs Affirm Support for C-484

As Members of Parliament, we continue to support the passage of the Unborn Victims of Crime Act, a Private Member`s Bill, sponsored by Ken Epp, MP for Edmonton-Sherwood Park.

The Unborn Victims of Crime Act (C-484) is an important piece of legislation, one that will create a separate offence under the Criminal Code to injure or kill an unborn child when the mother is assaulted.

At the present time, the Criminal Code of Canada “does not provide for any charges to be laid in respect of the unborn child who is injured or dies as a result,” according to MP Epp.

We, the undersigned, will continue to use all the legislative avenues at our disposal to ensure the successful passage of The Unborn Victims of Crime Act into law. We look forward to supporting Mr. Epp’s bill at third reading.
