Harper has stated that he is against a new abortion law and will oppose discussion in the house. Interesting, when he is trying to maintain his core vote which I understand to be amongst others, the anti-abortion crowd. However he refused to answer a question as to whether he would designate an up-coming private member’s bill as one the other conservative members must vote for.
He is afraid perhaps of antagonizing those he will need to vote for him if he is to get a majority. But this is the same guy who refused grants to Planned Parenthood, and Gay Pride. And he is the same guy who is refusing to have a place on the G8/G20 agenda for abortion rights in other countries. How do you spell hypocrisy?
