Pence will stay in Ottawa on Thursday to move forward with efforts to ratify the new US-Canada and Mexico trade agreement, but Trudeau said on Wednesday that he will also bring the issue of "decline" to women's rights.
"Of course, I am very worried about the situation regarding the revocation of women's rights, which we see from conservative movements here in Canada, the United States and around the world. I want to have a wide-ranging conversation with Vice-President who will, of course, come up, "the Canadian Prime Minister told reporters in Ottawa, adding that his main focus remains the new trade deal.
By contrast, Trudeau has been uncontested in support of access to abortion, including access to abortion later in pregnancy. "Late" abortions typically refer to abortions at or after 21
"The days when old men are going to decide what a woman does with her body is far away," he tweeted in 2014. And before the 2015 election, Trudeau told his party candidates that they would "be expected to vote pro-choice" on future legislation.
Earlier this month, while traveling to Paris, Trudeau went out of his way to draw attention to a new crop of US state laws aimed at banning or limiting abortion. "As a government as a Canadian, we will always be unequivocal about defending women's right to choose and defend women's rights in general. It is a pity that we are increasingly seeing conservative governments and conservative politicians removing rights that have been fiercely fought in Many years of generations of women and male allies, "he told reporters.
According to Canada's National Abortion, Canada is one of the few countries where there is no national law limiting abortion. However, patients continue to report delays and access problems.
