Erin O'Toole on conscience rights or lack thereof

I recently received a copy of a letter that a Canadian recently sent to Erin O'Toole. The letter pretty much speaks for itself.

Dear Mr. O'Toole,

I am a pro-life Canadian and have voted for conservative parties for decades. In the past few years, I have been very disappointed in the CPC for becoming more and more like the Liberals in their refusal to allow any protection for children in the womb, let alone a debate on the matter.

So when this election was called, I decided I could no longer vote for your party. However.....

.... I changed my mind recently, based on your comments to protect the conscience rights of doctors and other health care workers. Even though you are pro-choice, I respected that you at least recognized the hypocrisy of supporting a woman's choice when it comes to ending the life of her preborn child without also protecting the choice of the doctor whose conscience does not allow them to participate, in any way, in ending a child's life.

And then Justin Trudeau came out with this line that proved, once and for all, (although I already knew this, but now it came out loud and clear from his own mouth) that he is not actually pro-choice, but pro-abortion: "Pro-choice doesn't mean the freedom of doctors to choose. It means the freedom of women to choose. Leaders have to be unequivocal on that." (

And I thought to myself, "this is gold for the Conservatives!" I could see the headlnes: "Justin Trudeau admits he is not pro-choice!"

Mr. Trudeau can't have it both ways. If he's pro-choice then he has to support choice for both. To support the choice to have an abortion, but not the choice to refuse to facilitate an abortion, is, logically, and by the common sense definition of "choice," not pro-choice.  He is pro-choice only in one case, anti-choice in the other. So, clearly, choice is not the issue for Mr. Trudeau; abortion is the issue. And when the two choices come into conflict, he chooses the choice of abortion. Hence, he is pro-abortion.

When Mr. Trudeau criticized your definition of "pro-choice," Mr. O'Toole, I was even more firm in my conviction to vote for you because you were showing true leadership by not being intimidated by Mr. Trudeau's bullying and fear mongering and holding firm in your support for freedom of conscience and the actual meaning of words, eschewing hypocrisy (as well as an Orwellian use of the English language).

But that all ended shortly thereafter. You reversed your stance on freedom of conscience, and adopted the same policy as the Liberals,  requiring doctors to give "effective referrals" for a procedure that ends a human life.

You could have shown courage and leadership by using Mr. Trudeau's words against him, exposing his hypocrisy. Instead you retreated and let the same old and tired pro-abortion rhetoric of the Liberals define the terms and frame the narrative, throwing conscientious doctors under the bus.

Please, Mr. Toole, it's not too late to reverse your position...again...and do the right and just thing: please support the freedom of doctors not to make "effective referrals" for procedures that end the life of another human being.

Coercing doctors to violate their consciences will not bode well for the medical profession, nor their patients. 

It never has, and it never will.

Erin O'Toole says no to freedom of conscience rights for doctors

Dear Erin O'Toole,

I am really sad that you flipped on your original stance regarding conscience rights for doctors. It seems you are becoming more like Justin Trudeau every day. Will you next ban pro-life people from obtaining grants from the summer jobs program? And what about pro-life candidates? Do they get the axe as well?

It seems that Conservative party has lost its way. Perhaps you think that those of us who care about doctor's conscience rights and the rights of the pre-born child, are not important, and that those of us who hold these beliefs will vote for the Conservatives anyway. Think again. We can and will vote for the Christian Heritage Party or the People's Party of Canada. And if there is no candidate in a riding, we can spoil our vote.

Canada already has enough parties from the left. I hope you change your mind about where you stand on issues that are crucial for a very large number of Canadians. We do not need Justin Trudeau lite.

Eternity is forever

Dear Ms. Fortier,

I received your booklet in my mailbox this week. It makes for interesting reading. I noted a couple of issues in the booklet, for which I have questions.

1) Ottawa-Vanier benefited from 840 jobs through the summer Canada Jobs program, at a cost of over $3 million dollars. Can you please tell me if any of these new positions were allotted to pro-life students or pro-life organizations?

2) The title on this page: A Feminist Government for a Feminist Recovery. Can you please explain how your Liberal government's feminist values--which by definition excludes men and pro-life women--can help a financial recovery of our economy? 

3) You mention Budget 2021, but noticeably absent are any details as to how the billions spent during the pandemic, is going to be repaid by your Liberal government. Can you please provide me with those details? 

4) And finally, the title of your booklet states: Building an inclusive, green, and feminist post-pandemic economic recovery. 

From this title, and from what I detailed above, calling the booklet an economic recovery plan is misleading since the booklet contains no information on an economic recovery. It is also not inclusive since it is exclusive of men, of pro-life women, of pro-life businesses, and of pro-life students.

Can you please provide me with answers to these very important questions at your earliest convenience?

Thank you.

This is sick

This is the kind of disgusting drivel we've come to expect from Joyce Arthur's warped Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada. Doesn't get much sicker than this.

Nunavut sends women elsewhere for second trimester abortions

I asked for clarification as to why CIHI reports actual abortion numbers in Nunavut, while Nunavut Health does not. Here is the response I received:

"CIHI receives only Qikiqtani General Hospital data (Inpatient and Day Surgery visit information). Some of the reported numbers may be patients with a Nunavut health care card who had the procedure done in a Southern clinic or hospital.

CIHI (Canadian Institute for Health Information) receives the data for this report from the data collected, entered and reported to CIHI. Inpatient and Day Surgery visit records are reviewed by a coder. Information is collected, coded using ICD-10-CA and CCI (diagnosis, intervention and other mandatory data fields collected) and entered into the Med2020 abstracting system. When all records are processed for the reporting month, a file is created and sent in a secure manner to CIHI. 


Some clients are sent to Ottawa or Toronto because they are beyond the time limit for safety here (14 weeks maximum in Iqaluit). The abortion procedures are only performed in Iqaluit."

When I asked what was meant by "Southern clinic or hospital", I received this answer.

"Some of the reported numbers may be patients with a Nunavut health care card who had the procedure done in a Southern clinic or hospital."

So Nunavut may perform abortions later than 14 weeks gestation. Very sad.
