Abortion & Fetal Rights - Child Saved From Abortion

Abortion access in Canada is among the freest in the world. Canada has no criminal laws regulating or prohibiting abortion. Over 100, 000 abortions are carried out each year in Canada. In practice, abortion can legally be performed during all nine months of pregnancy.

All human life is precious. Life is a gift from God for us to respect and protect through all its stages, from conception to natural death. Each person’s life has worth because they are made in the image of God and loved by him. On the basis of this belief in the sanctity of human life, the EFC supports fetal rights and opposes abortion.

Abortion also has an impact on the mother, with the potential for serious physical, emotional and psychological effects.
