Pregnant Women Deserve Protection For Their Fetuses

As a young woman in Canada, I would like to express my gratitude to Ken Epp for introducing Bill-C484. It is very disturbing to think that if I became pregnant in Canada there are no laws to protect my wanted child. However, if someone injured my cat I could press several different charges against the offender. It is pretty ridiculous that as a Canadian citizen I can protect my cat, and or my possessions, but there is nothing in Canadian law that says I have the right to protect a wanted child.
The only ridiculous thing about this bill is that we haven't spoken up about this issue sooner.
