Liberal M.P. Tom Wappel and Conservative M.P. Maurice Vellacott appeared on Mike Duffy Live today as a non-partisan, united front discussing the anti-abortion rally on Parliament Hill.
"More than a dozen Conservative and Liberal backbench MPs, along with several senators, spoke at Thursday's rally, urging the crowd to keep up their fight", according to the CTV website.
Wappel said Canada is behind on abortion legislation in comparison to other countries.
"We're the only western democracy that has absolutely no law whatsoever when it comes to protecting the unborn child," he said.
Wappel said abortion is a "taboo" subject among politicians, many of whom won't publicly give their opinion on the subject.
Speaking out against abortion
I am not making this up.
Update: As I mentioned in the comments of this post, the NDP has a policy regarding social issues that all caucus members must vote as the party dictates (which is a rather ironic, considering what a fascist concept that is.) Therefore, anyone living in a riding represented by an NDP M.P. has absolutely no hope of having their concerns taken to heart.
This is a problem with moral issues because even with the Liberal and Conservative backbenchers being allowed to vote their conscience, the NDP and quite often the Bloc have to vote along party lines. Bev Desjarlais found that out the hard way during the same-sex marriage vote. The New "Democratic" Party is anything but democratic.
And they talk about Stephen Harper being a control freak.
