Article Information

Background Conservative backbencher MP Stephen Woodworth proposed Motion 312, which proposed to redefine when human life begins in the Criminal Code.
Reason M-312 was the motion that got pro-choicers mobilized and the end result was The Radical Handmaids. I was quoted because of the rally we held against M-312.
Comment I made my grandmother really proud with this quote:

"Julie Lalonde, a member of the pro-choice group Radical Handmaids, said she hopes their work will send Mr. Woodworth's motion “back to the hell hole it came from.”
Outcome M-312 was defeated in the fall of 2012. Woo!
