Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole was repeatedly pressed Monday morning about his pro-choice stance on abortion as his MP Cathay Wagantall readies a bill aimed at restricting abortion access.

The private member's bill looks to amend the Criminal Code to outlaw medical practitioners from performing abortions based on the sex of the fetus — a practice sexual health group Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights says is next to non-existent in Canada.

"Restricting abortion access in any way is an attack on women's rights, not a way to address gender-based discrimination," said Action Canada's Sarah Kennell in a statement.
