Mr. Speaker, in 1988, Conservative MP, Lawrence O'Neil, said in the House, about a woman's right to choose:
It appears that there is widespread acceptance of the notion that a mother should have the right to control her body. There is no such right.
Now that same Lawrence O'Neil has been appointed by the government as a justice on the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.
Canadian women fought hard for the right to choose. Will the minister explain how Canadians can believe that he is not packing the courts with Conservative ideologues?
