I just sent this email to: mike @ weneedalaw.ca, contact @ whenamihuman.com, stephen.woodworth @ parl.gc.ca
I am a prochoice blogger, resolutely opposed to M312. I blog here.
I have been asking at my blog and on twitter a simple question for M312 supporters: If M312 passes and a committee is formed to hear testimony intended to 'modernize' the definition of personhood, which experts would you like MPs to hear from?
There have been no replies.
Presumably, in your research and activism on this subject, you have identified, at least provisionally, a list of such experts.
Since Canadians will be paying for this exercise, I think we are entitled to a glimpse at the proposed guest list.
After all, how can MPs be asked to vote for a discussion without some idea of the sort of information they will be seeking? Science? Law? Medicine?
I await your answers.
Will there be any replies?
Me, I don't think so.
UPDATE: Zoom! Auto-reply.
