Judy Rebick wants abortion to be an election issue


Some women in this discussion express a fear that abortion could become an election issue. Harper knows as well as I do that the vast majority of Canadians are pro-choice. If abortion is an election issue, he will lose the election. So to that I say, bring it on.

Just because most people support legal abortion doesn't mean that Canadians want it to be an election issue.

I can see Harper's response a mile away: I and most Canadians don't want to talk about abortion. We want to talk about the economy.

And as Layton and Ignatieff fumble through this topic, Harper will win a majority.

Ignatieff tried the abortion vote grab. As long as Harper does NOTHING about abortion-- he's safe. And that's what he's going to do.
