Pro-choice advocates rally in front of MP's office amidst his support to defund abortions - 2019-07-22
Pro-choice advocates rallied outside of Kitchener-Conestoga MP Harold Albrecht's office on Monday in an effort to protest against the Member of Parliament's move to sign on to a petition in the House of Commons "to cease providing taxpayers' dollars" to fund abortions.
The small crowd of over a dozen people held signs that read 'Pro-choice is my choice' and 'I support choice' and many rally goers expressed their disappointment in the MP for bringing up the issue at all. The group yelled chants about women's rights in unison as cars honked their horns along Max Becker Drive.
"It's scary in this community that we have an MP that would still open up this discussion," says Nancy Brissett, a healthcare worker and one of the organizers of the rally.
