Conservative MP seeks to open emotive abortion debate

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made it clear his government will not reopen the abortion debate. But Stephen Woodworth, the Conservative MP for Kitchener Centre wants to reverse course. And force Parliament to enact a law that supposedly extends “human rights” to unborn children.

In a statement released to the press yesterday, Woodworth claims:

“Canadian law provides no human rights protection whatsoever for children before the moment of complete birth. This means that in Canada a child is legally considered to be sub-human while his or her little toe remains in the birth canal, even if he or she is breathing.”

The emotive language of human rights, again. Of course there’s no better way to force open the emotive abortion debate. Before we succumb to this attempt at mass political emotional manipulation, the truth: This is about Conservatives and their pro-life, anti-women position. Period.

The late comedian, George Carlin, saw it coming:

Pro-life Conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t wanna know about you.

Carlin dishes it all out all here:
