The Women’s Legal Mentorship Program (WLMP) stands in solidarity with and extends our support to American women, non-binary and gender nonconforming individuals who have lost and/or are at risk of losing their right to access safe abortion services in the United States. The WLMP unequivocally supports and demands access to safe reproductive healthcare options, which includes abortion care, both in Canada and abroad. Every person has the right to make decisions regarding their reproductive health. No one should be deprived of their right to choice and to make decisions regarding their body.

Women’s Legal Mentorship Program (WLMP) Statement Regarding the War in Ukraine

The Women’s Legal Mentorship Program (WLMP) supports the continued efforts of the Canadian government to impose strict sanctions on Russia. The WLMP calls on the Canadian government, and Western nations, to provide mass effort to minimize human suffering and end the invasion. This conflict has the potential for mass casualties and millions of refugees. Canada must offer humanitarian aid and provide an open, safe and welcoming route for all refugees seeking to flee the violence.
