A call from MP Stephen Woodworth to re-examine limits on abortion in Parliament, as reported in the Globe.
An Ontario Conservative MP says Parliament must take another look at whether unborn babies deserve to be treated as human beings, a move that could ultimately challenge the ability to terminate pregnancies with abortion. Stephen Woodworth, the member for Kitchener Centre, said in a news release Wednesday that a majority of Canadians wrongly believe the law protects the fundamental human rights of children before birth in the later stages of gestation. “In fact, the opposite is true,” Mr. Woodworth says in his release. “Canadian law provides no human rights protection whatsoever for children before the moment of complete birth.”
Way to go Mr. Woodworth. Rare is the politician who speaks his mind on these matters, and who speaks plain English, too. (“I believe in a woman’s right to choose” is one big euphemism from beginning to end and is indicative of a politicians who has never given any thought to the issue.)by
