Mr. Speaker, my God, I do not know what is in the water today.
A year ago, the Conservatives solemnly swore that they would not reopen the abortion debate. Yet members of the Conservative anti-choice caucus are at work in churches across the country. The hon. member for Glengarry—Prescott—Russell is circulating a petition in churches with a view to amending section 223 of the Criminal Code, which would open the door to criminalizing abortion. Canadian law is clear: women have the right to choose.
Why do the Conservatives want to use a parliamentary secretary to reopen the abortion debate?
