Bus, Rod:

Harper to 'recommend' defeat of Tory MP’s abortion bill

OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper will vote against a private member's bill promoted by one of his own MPs that would add new Criminal Code penalties for those who coerce women to have an abortion.

A senior government official also says that while the prime minister will not "whip" or demand Conservative MPs vote as he votes, it will be "very strongly recommended" that Conservatives vote to defeat the bill.

See, that's what happens when you count on the batshit fucking crazy demographic to keep you in office -- eventually, they start having their own ideas, and we all know nothing good ever comes of that.

Oh, the irony burns. What this bill amounts to is coercion.

Ok, contards, let's have this both ways shall we? Prosecute the people who coerce women to take a pregnancy to term when they don't want to. HAVE THE BABY HAVE THE BABY IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE BABY YOU WILL BURN IN HELL, is coercion.

Counsellors offering CHOICES aren't being coercive.
