The Canadian Medical Association voted Wednesday (“by a wide margin”, according to the Edmonton Sun) to come out against C-484, The Unborn Victims of Crime Act:
Dr. Robert Ouellet, who assumed the CMA presidency yesterday, said the physician group opposes the bill.
“It’s not about abortion, being for or against abortion,” Ouellet said. “It’s being against making doctors criminals.”
Ouellet said the CMA has a legal paper suggesting the bill, if passed, could make a doctor who performs an abortion vulnerable to charges.
