Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Defeat of Motion M-312

Posted on September 26, 2012

OTTAWA– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the defeat of Conservative motion M-312:

“The results of tonight’s vote are clear – the Canadian consensus  that reproductive decisions are private and should be left to a woman to make – has been clearly reaffirmed by the House of Commons.

The Liberal Party has been consistent in its position that the abortion debate should not be reopened.

While we respect the right of individual Members of Parliament to vote freely on private members’ bills and motions, the Liberal Party is unequivocal in its support of a women’s right to choose. Canadian women should know that the Liberal Party remains a staunch ally and protector of their Charter rights.”
