Canadian Law Says a 9-Month-Old Baby Killed in a Crime Against Her Mother Isn’t a Human Being
Ottawa, Canada | 5/2/17

On October 19, 2016, our Members of Parliament voted down Bill C-225 (Cassie and Molly’s Law), a law that would have allowed additional charges to be laid against a killer who took the life of a woman he knew to be pregnant. The law was considered unnecessary, and fear was strong that this recognition of wanted children would lead to a reopening of the abortion debate. Many MPs spoke of the greater need for a national strategy addressing violence against women, calling this one small bill insignificant in addressing the larger need. They chose to do nothing rather than take one small step.

Canadian Bill Would Allow Pregnant Women to Start Maternity Benefits 7 Weeks Sooner
Ottawa, Canada | 12/7/16

Over the past number of years in Canada, there has been a marked increase in women working in highly physical skilled trades typically thought of as “men’s domains”. These jobs may come with more risks for a woman and her pre-born child during pregnancy, or be inadvisable or impossible to continue in while pregnant. While the Employment lnsurance Act states that pregnant women are eligible for a total of 15 weeks of maternity benefits, the earliest these benefits can start is 8 weeks before the birth of her child. Those eight weeks, however, are beginning to be recognized as woefully inadequate in an increasingly gender-balanced workforce.
