Mr. Speaker, we could save 70,000 lives per year.
The Minister for La Francophonie says that the WHO does not talk about abortion. That is absolutely false. The WHO agrees with the Canadian position of the past 25 years.

Women, and not the Prime Minister, must control their bodies.
What right does the Prime Minister have to interfere in the medical decisions of African women?
