譴責因性別墮胎的動議被訂為不符合表決 Motion to condemn sex selective abortion deemed “non-votable”

週四早上,國會內一個由保守黨、新民主黨及自由黨議員共同組成的小組裁定M-408動議「不符合表決」,他們的理由是M-408動議和M-312動議同是討論墮胎議題,由於該議題已在國會討論過,他們認為沒有必要再次就同類動議作出表決。M-408動議原定在3月28日在國會進行首小時辯論。提出動議的保守黨國會議員Mark Warawa表示會提出上訴。他說:「現在不只是關乎M-408,而是關乎民主精神。」

Toronto Sun的網站設有民意調查,讓大家就M-408動議應否在國會進行表決表達意見,請投贊成票。

This morning, Motion 408, the motion to condemn sex selection was declared non-votable by the Sub-Committee on Private Members’ Business. The members argued that this Parliament had already taken up the issue – claiming that M-408 and M-312 were both on abortion – and thus cannot be taken up again under parliamentary rules. Motion 408 was scheduled to have its first hour of debate on March 28 originally. MP Mark Warawa, who proposed the motion, said he will appeal the decision. He said: “The issue is not about M-408 anymore. It’s about democracy.”

Toronto Sun’s website has a poll regarding whether Motion 408 should proceed, please vote yes.
