But I never thought the Fucking NDP® would sink to this.
Here's the full text of the press release:
Reality check: Ignatieff record doesn’t match words on women’s right to choose
April 17, 2011
Michael Ignatieff today professed his personal support for abortion access.
What he didn’t tell the crowd gathered at his town hall in Vancouver? In December, ten Liberal MPs stood up in favour of a Conservative Private Member’s Bill that risked criminalizing abortion providers and promoted an anti-choice agenda.
Those Liberals are:
In fact, when the Liberal caucus introduced a motion to guarantee a “full range” of family planning options in Canada’s G8 commitments to Child and Maternal Health last March, their own members caused the motion to fail. Mr Ignatieff left this fact out today when he spoke about the G8 initiative.
Some of that is true. Those ten Fucking Harper Liberals® did vote in favour of Rod Bruinooge's lying POS bill, C-510, supposedly to penalize 'coerced' abortions.
And, yes, the Fucking Liberals® did screw up the no-brainer vote against the Cons' hypocritical 'maternal health without family planning' initiative.
But as the CBC's own Reality Check points out, Iggy was there for the second and voted against it.
But [Iggy] did specify what his position is on abortion and indicated that not everyone in his caucus shares his view.
He's OK with that because, as he explained it, abortion is an issue of conscience.
"I want you to know what my position, the position of most of my party is," he said Sunday.
"I say most for a reason. We're talking about abortion, these are issues of conscience. A democratic society that truly respects freedom of belief, and freedom of opinion, cannot compel in matters of abortion," he said.
Ignatieff's position by the way is that he believes in defending a woman's right to choose and that there should be public funding support for "the full gamut" of women's reproductive health services, both at home and overseas, he said Sunday.
I do NOT agree with Iggy's position that choice is a conscience issue. It is a human rights issue.
But these are Fucking Liberals® we're talking about here. They are the poster children for 'Opportunistic Politicians R Us'.
I expected better of the Fucking NDP®.
With the continuing attacks on the Liberals, rather than joining forces with them to defeat a common enemy, the Fucking NDP® was fast losing my respect.
Now, with this totally sleazy move, they've lost my vote.
That's it. It's over between us, Jack.
Until the Fucking NDP® finds its conscience again and loses Jumping Jack Flash as leader, I'm outta there.
Luckily, in my riding, the Con has less chance than a snowball in hell. So I'm holding my nose and voting Fucking Liberal®.
You can all pick yourselves off the floor now.
