David Anderson Cypress Hills—Grasslands, SK

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition to present.

The petitioners state that Canada's 400-year-old definition of a human being says that a child does not become a human being until the moment of complete birth, contrary to 21st century medical evidence, and that Parliament has a solemn duty to reject any law that says that some human beings are not human.

Therefore, the petitioners call upon the House of Commons and Parliament to confirm that every human being is recognized by Canadian law as human by amending section 223 of our Criminal Code.

These petitioners come from across Canada. I have a second petition from my own riding, another one from across Canada and a third one from my own riding.
