Here are quotes from Leslyn Lewis on various life and family issues:
Expressing her principled revulsion at the horror of "sex-selective" abortion, which is the killing of unborn children solely because of their sex, and often targeting girls: "How can someone claim to be a feminist and support sex selective abortion? There is clear evidence that baby girls are targeted in the womb just because they are the “wrong sex”. We cannot continue to justify the misogynistic practices of sex selective abortion in Canada."
