Pro-choice groups warn against Harper majority (Canada Conservative Party)
Source: CBC News

Women's rights may be at risk if Stephen Harper's Conservatives win a majority government, a coalition of pro-choice groups said Monday.

The group pointed to comments last week by Conservative candidate Brad Trost, the incumbent in Saskatoon-Humboldt, who said the government de-funded Planned Parenthood because of pressure from groups opposing abortion.

The coalition also said the Conservatives ended an arbitration process in 2006 that would have allowed for funding abortions in New Brunswick clinics, forcing women there to pay to end pregnancies.

A spokeswoman for the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics and the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada said in a news release that Harper ignored experts at the Canadian International Development Agency when the government decided not to provide funding for groups that offer abortions to women in developing countries.

It's already happened in America where the Republicans are the majority in the House: the House voted to defund Planned Parenthood, and some Republican-dominated state legislatures are passing/proposing abortion restrictions.

1. The liberals are incompetent
Why would they bring a no confidence motion if it you divide the vote between them and the NDP and help Harper in the end?
