Heather Mallick Has a Message for Tim Hudak...
You can run but you can't hide.
Hudak thinks it’s sufficient to promise he won’t reopen the debate on abortion rights, although such a debate is not occurring in Ontario and the fact that he thinks it is says a lot about his views.
A politician’s promise means nothing, especially since Hudak has to answer to a hard-right caucus that may well demand that since abortion can’t be banned, women seeking abortions must be tormented.
Mallick gives credit where credit is due.
The story about Hudak signing the petition emerged on a blog by a smart woman who keeps an eye on things. She noticed that Hudak’s stance, or lack of one, was reported on the ARPA website.
And explains to the Christianist who complained, why he doesn't know what he's talking about:
The blogger “had a chip on his/her shoulder,” Penninga said.
And yes, she did. But what he and Hudak and Harper should understand is that abortion is not a “chip” on a woman’s shoulder, it is her body and her life, her internal sanctity and her choice.
I am warning those who want Canadian women to lose their right to abortion that this will not be a skirmish. It lives in the hearts of girls and women. We will fight you on this.
You know Hudak can shrug off the controversy over his plans to put dangerous criminals on our streets and in our parks. And he can try to explain why he seems obsessed about chicken houses.
The Conservatives have egg on their faces after claiming there's so much red tape in Dalton McGuinty's Ontario that egg farmers are told what colour to paint the insides of their barns.
The feathered IDIOT.
But the abortion issue will haunt him all the way to the election.
Run Hudak RUN.
Thank you Dammit Janet...
