Justin Trudeau just announced that the Liberal party is officially “pro-choice” and won’t allow any new candidates to run unless they are “pro-choice” said that no government can tell a woman what to do with her body.
"We are steadfast in our belief ... it is not for any government to legislate what a woman chooses to do with her body. And that is the bottom line."
Well, someone should tell Justin that the Supreme Court of Canada, in the 1988 Morgentaler decision, said that Parliament certainly could put restrictions on abortion because the state does have an interest in protection of the fetus.
Is it even possible that Trudeau doesn't know this. Nah sure he does. I think he's just pulling our leg. He is right?
I have to say though, it really gets boring listening to people talk about 'not telling women what to do with her body'. They can't seem to grasp the very simple fundamental biological fact that a pre-born child is someone else's body. But I think Trudeau knows that. He'd just prefer to buy into the pro-abortion myth.
"We make sure that the people who are stepping forward are consistent with the Liberal Party as it is now, as it stands under my leadership and under the feedback we're getting from Canadians across the country."
Ah, he's never gotten that kind feedback from me, or did he forget? Thought police--here we come.
Apparently he was stumped when asked whether he would whip any future votes on abortion.
"It is a tough one."
Poor Justin. He doesn't have a clue.
