Official Letter to Prime Minister of Canada on International Women's Day

Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Honourable Minister Bibeau, and Honourable Minister Monsef,

As a research institute dedicated to researching the short and long term effects of abortion on women, men, and families worldwide, we are greatly concerned with your recent decision to include abortion related procedures in the $650 million to be allocated towards women’s health and rights around the world.

Thank you for your support in 2016! What one medical student said about our work...

This past year we had a number of public events, speaking engagements and discussions with the public on major life issues including abortion, women’s health, palliative care, conscience rights for medical professionals, and assisted suicide.
