Seventy-two percent of Canadians surveyed in a September National Omnibus poll support legal protection for unborn babies. Most (62%) want protection from conception, or two or three months' gestation on. Another ten percent favor protection from 6 months on (Source: Environics poll commissioned by LifeCanada).
The majority of Canadians clearly do want legal protection for our unborn children.
So why won't Mr. Harper allow us to debate abortion in Canada?
We still don't know the answer to that question so I guess we'll just have to start the debate without him.
Perhaps Mr. Harper might want to watch Stefanie Gray (CCBR) debating Jovan Morales (Atheist Community of the University of Ottawa) at the University of Ottawa on November 11.
The topic was "Should physicians provide, or refer for, abortion?"
Mr. Harper might want to get involved, and learn something that is extremely important to many of the people he is Prime Minister to. He might even learn something new. Or he can ignore us.
It's your choice, Mr. Harper.
