B.C. abortion censorship campaign takes off

B.C.'s Information and Privacy Commissioner now has more than 2,500 signed postcards protesting the censorship of abortion information in the province. The postcards were delivered as part of a campaign to see Section 22:1 of BC’s Information Act overturned. The section prohibits the release of any information, other than general statistics, on the topic of abortion. A blog and Facebook group have been set up to educate British Columbians on the history of Section 22:1, and why the amendment was passed.
