As many readers of this blog know, Liberal party leader Justin Trudeau stated this past year that his MPs must fall into line, and vote pro-choice on any bills or motions that cross their desks. Freedom of conscience for his MPs was tossed to the side in favour of a rather radical pro-choice position. I’ve written on this issue several times in the last few years.
Oh democratic and human rights. I miss you.
Anyway, in response to his decision and in anticipation of the upcoming federal election, Campaign Life Coalition Youth and the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform have lauched the #No2Trudeau campaign. You can learn about the campaign here:
The 2015 federal election presents the pro-life movement with a tremendous opportunity in Canada. For the first time ever, we have in Justin Trudeau a leader that we must unify against given that he’s unambiguously and vocally pro-abortion, supportive of the so-called “right to die,” and opposes the government’s anti-prostitution legislation which attempts to combat human trafficking to keep women safer. Justin Trudeau has declared that there is no choice but pro-“choice” in the Liberal party of Canada, forcing Members of Parliament in his caucus to vote down any legislation restricting abortion, regardless of their conscience or their beliefs. This does not just impact pro-life MPs and members of the Liberal Party, it also impacts the majority of Canadians who feel that abortion should be subject to at least some restrictions. Justin Trudeau is not only an extremist on the abortion issue, he is also forcing the Liberal Party to join him in his extremism.
