Policy Statement: Reproductive Exploitation

Origins Canada supports the protection of  vulnerable women and youth against reproductive exploitation.

Reproductive exploitation and coercion, like sexual assault and domestic violence, happens behind closed doors.  Like these acts, reproductive coercion also involves harmful acts perpetrated against women and children by people in positions of trust or who have greater social and financial power than their victims.

Origins Canada supports any legislation intended to protect women and girls against reproductive exploitation.
