ARPA has released a new Respectfully Submitted policy report. Law and Policy Director André Schutten says the report focusses on abortion and pre-born human rights. He says the report uses language that is “winsome in today’s culture. The language of ‘human rights’, and basing (the policy position) in science.” He says the report pulls the reader through both the scientific record and then relates the issue to human rights, and how currently, Canadian law is “completely incompatible with both science and human rights.”
