“There is nothing politically right that is morally wrong” Daniel O’Connell
“Embattled MP Maxime Bernier held nothing back Thursday when he tore into his Conservative Party as ‘intellectually and morally corrupt’ and said Andrew Scheer if elected would be a moderate Trudeau.” https://globalnews.ca/video/4405068/bernier-unloads-on-morally-and-intellectually-corrupt-conservatives/
Trudeau got lots of criticism for his abortion attestation. And Andrew Scheer had this to say about it:
"I believe that the federal government should respect the freedoms that Canadians enjoy to have different beliefs and that by imposing personal values of Justin Trudeau on a wide variety of groups is not an appropriate way to go...We have concerns with the way this Liberal government is treating people with different opinions on different issues."
Now Andrew Scheer appears to be doing something similar as Trudeau did. A CBC News article of August 25, 2018 had this headline: “Scheer firm on leaving abortion debate closed”
The article went on to quote Scheer as saying:
“I have made it very clear, I will not reopen these types of divisive social issues.”
The article said, “One of the policy resolutions put to a vote Saturday afternoon at the Conservative Party convention dealt with the party's line on abortion legislation...While factions of the Opposition party are pro-life, former prime minister Stephen Harper and now Scheer both refused to reopen the legislation.”
And consider this report:
“Conservative deputy leader Lisa Raitt said she was relieved to see a proposal that could have reopened the abortion debate in Canada narrowly defeated at the party’s policy convention on Saturday.
“Ms. Raitt said Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer made a promise during last year’s leadership race that he would not bring forward any government legislation on the subject.
“‘It was a great thing for the party,’ Ms. Raitt told the Globe after the vote.
“Andrew made a clear promise, that people relied upon, that a government of Conservative members would not introduce abortion legislation. Very important to me. And we’re not going to go back on it.”
I believe that when it comes to abortion, Andrew Scheer is starting to sound like a clone of Justin Trudeau or Stephen Harper:
“As long as I am prime minister we are not opening the abortion debate” Stephen Harper, quoted in Globe and Mail, April 21, 2011
“Anti-abortion candidates need not apply in 2015, Justin Trudeau says”
People should be very concerned. If Andrew Scheer can declare that he will not “reopen” the abortion issue then what other issues will he be closed to by making a “promise”? “Nice” isn’t it? Politicians can make “promises” among themselves and to hell with the people of the country! Has Canada become a dirty political dictatorship?
In a supposed democracy one would think that all issues would be up for discussion and debate. We have no law on abortion in this country; the baby can be slaughtered right up to the moment of birth. A woman’s “right to choose” rolling off the tongues of slippery politicians makes this heinous act of slaughtering vulnerable pre-born human beings sound like something on a menu. So what does it really mean? Well, what the politicians don’t like to do is go into detail about this heinous act.
But the reality is, supporting “choice” on abortion actually means cutting the pre-born to pieces, suctioning their bodies apart, or injecting potassium chloride into their hearts. Other pre-born children are murdered by having the back of their necks pierced by sharp scissors and their brains suctioned out (partial birth abortion). Some have been born alive but are left to die.  [1a] Barbarity is being practiced and human sacrifices are made. This is the heinous atrocity disguised under the political slogan of a “woman’s right to choose,” and is parroted by ethically and democratically challenged politicians.
Surely the most important issue in the next federal election should be the obscene lawless killing of the child in the womb under the banner of “choice." There is no law on this abominable act of slaughter in Canada and the leaders of all the prominent political parties travelling the country will be begging for votes. I believe all are complicit in this bloodstained atrocity called abortion, and are acting like tin pot dictators. Parliament is the place where laws are made and these leaders and others before them chose to ignore or suppress the sanctity of human life and instead parroted the banal slogan called “freedom of choice" to kill. And so the massive killing continues at a rate of over 100,000 innocent lives snuffed out yearly in the country’s abortion chambers. Where are their ethics and principles on protecting human life? Where are their morals? Where is so-called Canadian democracy? What are politicians afraid of? Or are they all “morally corrupt”?
