Conservatives Show Toxic Agenda on Choice Again

 Ottawa - Canadian women and men have expressed outrage at the letter written by three Conservative Members of Parliament to the RCMP Commissioner, equating abortion to murder.

 Following, the release of the letter New Democrats have demanded that the Government take action in support of a woman's right to choose.  Niki Ashton, Megan Leslie, Françoise Boivin and Rosane Doré-Lefebvre rose in the House and demanded the Government take action.  "The Prime Minister claims he doesn't want to re-open the abortion debate. Yet time and time again his colleagues put the issue on the front page." said Ashton in the House of Commons.

 New Democrats have called on the Prime Minister to clear the record and state on behalf of his government that abortion is not murder, and that a woman's right to choose must be respected.
