WHEREAS according to the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in the Sullivan and Lemay case, the baby during the course of birth is not recognized as a legal person, and therefore does not have the legal right to protection of his or her life during the course of birth;

AND WHEREAS this court decision provides the opportunity for negligence causing death and deliberate infanticide (with or without the knowledge or consent of the mother);

BE IT RESOLVED that REAL Women of Canada demands that Parliament rectify this appalling situation by passing legislation to protect women and their unborn children during the process of birth.
