Considering that in accordance with the Penal Code of Canada:

- In 1892 a law was created to criminalize any type of abortion;

- In 1969 the law was amended to legalize abortion only when itís done in a hospital under the agreement of three physicians who certified that the pregnancy endangered the life or the health of the woman (Art. 251);

- In 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada invalidated the law of 1969 with the consequence that abortion is not a crime anymore in Canada;

- In 1989, the government of Brian Mulroney submitted a new law to the Parliament to recriminalize abortion, which was rejected by the Senate in 1991;

- Since 1988, abortion in Canada has been fully decriminalized and regulated by the same laws as any other medical procedure.

Pro or Con: A new law should be created by the government of Canada to recriminalize abortion, with the consequence that any person, including the pregnant woman, who is found guilty of having practised an abortion, can incur a prison sentence.

Canada should not take part in US military operations, even though the US is an allied country.

We have seen so many wars in which Canada has been involved just because an ally like the United Kingdom or the United States was part of it that sooner or later, we will have to re-think this. Recently, Canadian soldiers have been sent in Afghanistan, but for what reason?
