Stephen Harper will not raise the abortion issue if he becomes Prime Minister. This is no surprise, since he has been saying the same thing more or less on repeat for at least five years now.
That said, I’m not sure why social conservatives swing in the national imagination between omniscient and powerful (The Armaggeddon Factor) and “spent.”
Harper is not the pro-life man of the hour. Maybe someday we’ll have a leader with this conviction on his/her heart. But it’s not Harper and I’m not particularly bothered by that.by
