Roxanne's Law Law-Related Questions and Answers, Part II

This is the second of a two part series on the most commonly asked legal questions about Bill C-510, Roxanne’s Law. You can find Part I here.

The questions answered in this part include the following:

  • Is there similar coerced abortion legislation in other countries?
  • Would the expressions “compel by pressure” or “rancorous badgering”, as used in the proposed definition of “coercion”, be new terms introduced into Canadian law?
  •  Is Bill C-510 too vague and therefore unconstitutional?
  • Why create a new, specific Criminal Code provision?
  • If Bill C-510 had already been law when Roxanne Fernando faced abortion coercion, how could it have changed the outcome?
  • Does abortion coercion really take place in Canada?
