Rona Ambrose facing backlash for personhood vote

by

After voting to re-evaluate Canadian policy on when personhood begins, minister of state for the status of women, Rona Ambrose, is facing backlash for her vote.

People have been calling for Ambrose’s resignation and criticism on Thursday after supporting M-312, a private member’s motion that would study when a fetus becomes a person.

An online petition asking that she step down gained thousands of signatures. Organizations like the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada and the Fédération des femmes du Québec also signed the petition.
