Canadian Conservatives Promise Not To Push For Abortion Restrictions

Major pro-life forces in Canada have no criticism of new Conservative leader Andrew Scheer’s position on abortion: which is to never discuss it, even though he say he’s pro-life himself.

As the National Post reports, Scheer named his “shadow cabinet” on Wednesday and excluded the most socially conservative and vocally pro-life Member of Parliament (MP), Brad Trost.

Trost, who ran against Scheer in the Conservative leadership race, told the National Post on Thursday that he can’t complain: “You know, I was actually struck by how much continuity there was.”

But vice president of REAL Women Canada Gwen Landolt says Scheer “is playing a dangerous game.” Landolt told The Daily Caller Friday that the opposition leader is turning his back on some of his core supporters.

“Mr. Scheer would never be leader of the party if not for the votes of Mr. Trosts’s social conservative supporters,” she said.
