moved for leave to introduce Bill C-507, an act to establish and maintain a national breast implant registry.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this bill to establish a national breast implant registry.

The legislation before the House seeks to establish a registry to monitor implant procedures and to further scientific research. It fills a critical gap in women's health protection by collecting currently unavailable data about implant procedures and data that is needed as a base for informed health based decisions by women and physicians. It would protect individual privacy while providing an effective means of notifying women of threats to their health.
