We’re On the Fence
But I’ve been very clear in this campaign — I don’t believe the party should have a position on abortion.~ Stephen Harper (1959-04-30 age:58)
This is preposterous. A government has to have some policy. It might be simply to leave the law as is or to defer to the supreme court. The federal government is in charge of all criminal law, including that surrounding abortion. He was just weaselling to avoid offending anyone.
