One day after Global News reported that dozens of Canadian woman across the country are being sent to the U.S. for abortions they cannot access here and on the heel of a pledge by the Quebec government to make late-term abortion accessible to women in the province, Bloc Quebecois MP Monique Pauzé asked for unanimous consent on a motion related to abortion.

Her motion asked "that the House of Commons reiterate that a woman's body belongs to her and her alone, and recognize her right to choose an abortion regardless of the reason."

In response, Liberal, NDP, Green Party, Bloc Quebecois and Independent members rose to applaud her statement.

But the Conservatives stayed in their seats and did not applaud.
