Gwen Again: Canadian Conservatives Promise Not To Push For Abortion Restrictions

Gwen Landolt facing down phony conservatives
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.

But Trost wants to assure Canadians that if the Conservative opposition replaces the Liberal government, it won’t raise the issue of abortion: “There’s no expectation that we will veer sharply to the right on anything,” Trost told the Post.

Campaign Life, the largest pro-life organization in Canada, was also praising Scheer’s leadership.  (more...)

I've been amazed at how Gwen Landolt is always miles ahead of the prolife movement in grasping its problems and accurately assessing its troubled marriage with conservative politics. She was immediately onto John Baird and his homosexualist agenda, and had to endure much grief before other social conservatives finally lined up behind her. I would expect that, again, she will have to weather a storm before others clue into the problems with Andrew Scheer. My hat is off to Gwen. I hope that others begin to appreciate her wisdom and experience.

  1. The so-called "con"servative movement has been totally absorbed by the homosexual movement. Whether federally, or provincially (e.g. Brown in Ontario), the "con"servatives really are nothing but new world order secularists.
