Mr. Speaker, I congratulate the member on her work on this file, which is clearly deeply important to her. Nobody here believes that life is unimportant. However, this bill is clearly designed to reopen the abortion debate. The law already protects mothers. Pregnancy is already a factor that our justice system takes into account in sentencing.
This bill could end up reducing the total time served because sentences would be served concurrently instead of consecutively.
In my colleague's opinion, how would this bill really change the behaviour of those who commit violent acts against women?
