Every Mother's Son (and Daughter)
Mothers everywhere are watching and hoping.
Please click over there and you'll find a an easy way to email Prime Minister Stephen Harper and demand that he keeps Canada's promise on reducing maternal mortality.
One way to reduce maternal mortality is to ensure women have reproductive choices so that they can have babies when their bodies are mature enough to handle pregnancy, or to prevent too many pregnancies in succession. Women should also have access to pregnancy monitoring technology and safe and legal abortion when their lives are in danger.
If women have these choices, they will have time to get an education and/or to start businesses or farms or find jobs in order to raise stronger and healthier children.
That's good for them.
That's good for us.
