Amnesty International Petition
June 12th, 2013 - 2:55pm
After years of being a leader on efforts at the UN Human Rights Council in addressing violence against women; this year Canada is determined to weaken and set-back the very standards that we have built up over the years. The catching points? As part of the effort to end violence against women Canada is not prepared to support sexuality education for girls or access to sexual/reproductive health services for survivors of rape. Other countries that have supported Canada in the past are so aghast that they are declining to cosponsor this retrograde resolution.
This cannot stand.
