Reproductive (In)Justice in Canadian Federal Prisons for Women

Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies I Martha J. Paynter

This report highlights how incarceration as a new parent and / or during the period of reproductive age is a barrier to being able to choose to parent and to parent children you do have. By preventing reproduction, dislocating children from their parents to the foster care system, and placing mothers at greater risk to their health and survival, the incarceration of Indigenous women in Canada meets the United Nations (1948) definition of genocide.
