On April 14, Rod tabled Roxanne’s Law (Bill C-510) in the House of Commons:

Mr. Rod Bruinooge (Winnipeg South, CPC) moved to introduce Bill C-510, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (coercion).

Mr. Speaker, it is a great honour to rise to introduce this private member's bill. This bill would be known as Roxanne's law, and it is based on the untimely death of Roxanne Fernando.

Roxanne Fernando was coerced into having an abortion but she did not go through with it. In the end, her boyfriend decided to kill her for not going through with it.  

This bill would protect vulnerable pregnant women. I hope that everyone in the House could support it.
