‘This man is reprehensible’: Justin Trudeau’s abortion stance draws anger of U.S. right

WASHINGTON — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s views on abortion are raising the ire of the U.S. right.

A former Trump White House adviser, several news organizations and the U.S. president’s favourite Fox News morning show have all dumped on Trudeau’s explanation for why pro-life groups should be excluded from $220 million in federal jobs grants.

The prime minister’s suggestion that pro-life groups were out of line with Canadian society triggered criticism in the country next door — where abortion remains a subject of mainstream political debate and is a central issue in the struggle for control of the U.S. Supreme Court.

“This man is reprehensible,” tweeted former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka.
