Russ Campbellâ€™s Blog: Trudeau on Abortion: My Way or the Highway
Justin Trudeau has choÂsen to close his LibÂeral partyâ€™s nomÂiÂnaÂtion process to a sigÂnifÂiÂcant porÂtion of CanaÂdiÂansâ€”those who are not in favour of a womenâ€™s unÂlimÂited right to choose an aborÂtion.
CBCâ€™s most reÂcent At IsÂsue segÂment covÂered Trudeauâ€™s deÂciÂsion, and I noÂticed that ChanÂtal HĂ©bert cast the isÂsue in a black-and-white manÂner. HĂ©bert imÂplied that those opÂposÂing aborÂtion all wanted an outÂright ban. And, unÂforÂtuÂnately for those of us who want some level of leÂgal proÂtecÂtion for feÂtuses, this seems to be the preÂvailÂing poÂsiÂtion of many who favour pro-choice.
