Conservatives Turn on Their Own

MP Stephen Woodworth
Stephen Woodworth is a backbench Conservative member of Canada's parliament. He recently put forward a private-member's bill that calls for a committee to be struck to  review Canada's 400 year old law defining when a baby is considered a human being. The current law states that a child is not human until he or she emerges fully alive from his or her mother's womb.

The opposition from the Liberals and the NDP was to be expected, but the vitriol from his own party whip is another thing entirely. Rather than me restating what has already been stated so well, I will simply post a link to this well-written article by Ottawa Citizen reporter David Warren. I hope it makes you think. Here's the link.

I decided to add the video below for your information. It's long (about 35 minutes), but gives a lot of information for anyone who really wants to know the facts. One of my greatest frustrations is that the vast majority of Canadians are unaware of the fact that there is no law protecting unborn children in Canada whatsoever. While most Canadians say they don't want the abortion debate re-opened, that's because most do believe the unborn have some protection. Over 70% of Canadians believe that there should be at least some limits on abortion. The video below has MP Stephen Woodworth presenting his own argument for your consideration.
