Today the House of Commons voted against Motion 312 with 91 MPs in favour and 203 against. CBC had apparently predicted that less than 50 MPs would support it. We will publish how each MP voted when it is official. This outcome is not a surprise, in light of the strong pressure from within the parties. However, we were encouraged to see numerous cabinet ministers support the motion.
But far more encouraging has been the widespread attention that this motion has brought to the plight of the unborn. Your petitions, letters, and other efforts have brought this issue to the living rooms of this nation. Way to go! Although our PM insists that the issue is closed, the last few months have made it abundantly clear that Canadians have no idea we are the only democratic country in the world without any protection for the unborn. Parliament is standing in the way of public opinion, common sense, and human rights.
We will press on, and we look forward to doing so with you.
