For more information about Bill C-510 aka Roxanne's Law, please visit our website.

On a cold Manitoba night in February 2007, a pregnant Roxanne Fernando was lured outside and brutally beaten at the hands of her boyfriend and the father of her unborn child. Roxanne had refused her boyfriend's demand that she terminate her pregnancy. Alone and viciously assaulted, mother and unborn baby died in a snowy ditch.

In April 2010, Member of Parliament Rod Bruinooge introduced Bill C-510, also known as Roxanne's Law. This bill is designed to protect the right of women to safely carry their child or children to term, should they choose to do so. This bill would make it a criminal offence to coerce or attempt to coerce a woman into having an abortion.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada supports this bill because it protects women and the children they want to give birth to. It is a simple and very specific bill that is clear in language and in purpose. Bill C-510 communicates that we as a society expect that pregnant women may live out their pregnancy in safety and in peace. It is a bill that seeks to protect some of Canada's most vulnerable citizens.
