TORONTO, Ontario, October 6th, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Campaign Life Coalition has urged its 66,000 supporter families to vote for the pro-life candidate in their riding, but in a change of tack, they say that if there is no pro-life candidate, supporters should vote for Tim Hudak’s Tories.
“Vote against the pro-abortion Liberals and NDP. Try voting first for a known pro-life candidate. If none exists, we urge you to vote for the Progressive Conservative candidate,” said Mary Ellen Douglas, CLC’s Ontario president, in a communication earlier this week to the 66,000 families on CLC’s Ontario supporter list.
Though Hudak has signaled that he would not change Ontario’s abortion status quo—government-funded abortion-on-demand—both Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty and NDP leader Andrea Horwath “publicly and proudly” support abortion access, says CLC.
This week, the leaders of Ontario’s abortion movement called on Ontarians to vote for anybody but Hudak’s Tories, claiming a victory for his party “would put abortion rights in danger for women in Ontario.”
All FCP Candidates are pro-life, pro-family.
