I'm willing to bet someone at the PMO
has a google news alert for "Maurice Vellacott AND abortion
" wired to a giant siren...because that's a very dangerous combination for the Tories. The latest
Maurice Vellacott, the MP for Saskatoon-Wanuskewin and a former pastor, faced criticisms for a news release lashing out against the "devastating emotional, physical and psychological effects" of abortion.
Released on Friday in response to a local news article about the availability of abortions in Saskatoon, Mr. Vellacott issued a lengthy statement about the "current abortion regime."
"Pro-life feminists have also come to see abortion as part of a male agenda to have women more sexually available. With widespread abortion access, the male partner has come to think that he can blame the woman if she chooses not to have an abortion after an unplanned pregnancy," he wrote.
"Saskatoon's doctors should be commended for the leadership they are showing by reducing the availability of abortion in our city."
