Defund Abortion in Ontario
TO The Legislative Assembly of Ontario: --
WHEREAS In Ontario, abortion is a service covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), paying for 32,000-50,000 elective abortions annually, at a cost to taxpayers of at least $30-$50 million dollars per year;
AND WHEREAS pregnancy is not a disease, injury or illness; an elective abortion is not a medical necessity and therefore, should not be covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.
WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: -
To cease providing taxpayers’ dollars for the performance of abortions by removing elective abortion from the list of services covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.
