In a letter signed by Most Rev. Jean Gagnon, Bishop of Gaspé and Chairman of the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF), COLF “encourage Catholics and all Canadians to contact their local MPs and ask them to vote in favour of Bill C-484”.  Known as the Unborn Victims of Crime Act, this bill would recognize intentional assault on unborn infants as a separate offense from assault on their pregnant mothers.
