Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Groups have been gathering in peaceful protest against abortion showing graphic imagery;
  • The sight of such imagery is being exposed to nonconsenting individuals and children;
  • Imagery may be triggering for persons who have suffered trauma and loss involving pregnancy, infancy, childbirth, etc.., including but not limited to: miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, abortion, domestic violence, and fleeing a country involved in war.
We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to please intervene and create law setting out the limitations as to what imagery and content can be used in a protest or similar demonstration that is subject to public viewing.
