CLC rating: Pro-abortion
Rating Comments: In a completely erroneous assertion, MLA Fontaine, NDP critic for the status of women, publicly made the false statement that "access to abortion is a human right" (see Quotes tab). The truth is that it has never been conclude in internation law that there is any "human right" to kill unborn children, so MLA Fontaine's rhetoric is either anti-life wishful thinking, or is an intentional lie.
