Well, it seems the FFs at the recent Conservatard Convention may have learned something.
They passed a resolution verrrry much like the Kicking Abortion's Ass Bill but looky here:
Although the resolution does indicate a pro-life sentiment among Canadian Conservatives, in an interview with LifeSiteNews.com, John Hoff, President of Campaign Life Coalition B.C., reminded pro-life activists to take this resolution for what it really is – one seeking to protect pregnant women and not unborn babies.
"As the President of Campaign Life Coalition of B.C., P-207 is not a resolution I would propose to protect unborn children. As much as I stand up for the lives of pregnant women, this resolution doesn't do anything for unborn children," said Hoff.
Hoff said the resolution is one which he wholeheartedly supports and that it is a great step forward in protecting pregnant women. However, he indicated that pro-life supporters should keep their
mouths shut about it being about recriminalizing abortionfeet on the ground.
However, someone's whose feet were actually on the ground at ConCon, liveblogging as much as they'd let him, Dr. Dawg, put it like this:
It became pretty obvious that the "protecting pregnant women" resolution (P-207) was all fetuses all the time.
Yup. That's pretty much what we expected.
