New Poster Girl for Coerced Abortion? Probably Not.

As more information comes out, I'm guessing that Melinda Morin may not turn out to be the ideal new poster girl for the Stringing Fetus Fetishists Along Bill, aka C-510, Bruinooge's private member's bill on 'coerced abortion'.

The Calgary Sun reports:
Morin, under cross-examination by Crown lawyer Eric Tolppanen, denied allegations she attacked Godwin because he was tossing her off his gravy train.

“You were basically homeless if not for Neil,” Tolppanen told the Calgary woman.

“I would’ve went back to Saskatchewan if I wanted to, but I wanted to be with him,” Morin said.

She acknowledged Godwin was kicking her out of his northeast Calgary condo because she continued to live a drug lifestyle.

“It was a pretty low point in your life,” Tolppanen suggested of Morin’s prospects of being thrown out of Godwin’s home.

“You’re pregnant, addicted to cocaine, no job and the one person that was providing you steady shelter is kicking you out,” the prosecutor said.

“Yes,” Morin agreed.

But the confessed killer said she was willing to leave, but Godwin wouldn’t let her go until she agreed to abort the unborn child she says was his.

“I wanted to leave, I was trying to leave because I didn’t want the abortion.”

The Calgary Herald has this to add:
She testified they had been dating for about three months and she spent most nights at his home, but also worked as a prostitute. She said Godwin didn't ask her to stop turning tricks, as the money helped pay for her drug habit, but she just wasn't supposed to do it at his home.

Do you think the fetus fetishists will recognize what a can of worms they're trying to open with Bruinooge's badly camouflaged anti-choice 'chill' bill?

Nah, me neither.

But will they slooowly back away from championing Ms Morin?

You betcha!

If they hear she was doing drugs, they'll probably want to drive her to the Morgentaler Clinic themselves. Fun with RWNJs...

@Fern: I'm guessing, but it probably stands for 'Right-Wing Nut Jobs' ...
