Protection for Preborn Children Act
Many Canadians have no idea that late-term abortions on preborn babies in the 7th to 9th month are legal in Canada. Beyond 24 weeks, the preborn baby is viable outside the mother. When the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the old abortion law in 1988, all the justices agreed the Canadian state has a compelling interest in defending the unborn, especially after the second trimester. After 30 years with no law in Canada, a debate on abortion in Parliament is long overdue. Canada is the only democracy with no abortion law, and its only company is North Korea and China. This is unacceptable. What Paul wants to see debated in Parliament is this: is there some common ground that we, as Canadians, can agree upon? Can legislators agree with the Supreme Court of Canada that the state should defend preborn babies beyond the second trimester? The Protection of Preborn Children Act would end the practice of late-term abortion (after 24 weeks), except in cases where there has been sexual abuse of a minor, rape, where the woman’s life of health is in serious jeopardy or if the baby has a fatal abnormality or no brain function. So far over 60 candidates from coast-to-coast have pledged to support Paul’s bill if they are elected in 2019.
Property Protection Act
Criminals are getting bolder and bolder and Canadians are sick of this. It’s time for criminals to be afraid, not our citizens. It is Paul’s priority to pass the Property Protection Act to authorize Canadians targeted by criminals to take the necessary measures and use adequate force to protect their legally owned property from theft, criminal interference or destruction.
Rural Protection Act
In a dangerous or life-threatening situation, seconds count! What happens if you live in a rural or rural small town area where the police can’t respond, and help is not going to come? The common sense answer is that Canadians in these areas must be allowed to effectively defend themselves. Unfortunately, the Firearms Act takes away access to the most effective tool for self-defence which are used by every police officer for exactly this reason: firearms. This is ironic, since many Canadians in rural and rural small town areas already are legal firearms owners and they are the most law abiding and highly vetted segment of the Canadian population. It is time for a common sense change! Paul’s Rural Protection Act will solve this problem by removing the current barriers in the Firearms Act which hinder self-defence and protection in rural areas. The Rural Protection Act will enable rural Canadians to defend themselves and their families using their legally owned firearms when their safety and lives are on the line.
