Secretive suppression of Canadian abortion data ‘obstructs’ democracy: new report

OTTAWA, August 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Gaping holes in Canadian abortion data and the surreptitious passage of legislation in Ontario saying abortion data can no longer be obtained, even through a Freedom of Information request, is nothing other than the “obstruction” of democracy, according to a new report by the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC).

The EFC’s new report, “Black Holes: Canada’s Missing Abortion Data,” details the abortion-data-blocking amendments to Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) that came into effect on January 1, 2012, and reports on the nation-wide trend of the suppression of reporting of data on Canadian abortion procedures.
