Yes, every boy needs a hobby, including our parliament’s fetus fetishists. Thus the “Parliamentary Pro-Life Caucus” rides again, now with Rod “Massive Poll” Bruinooge replacing Maurice Vellacott at the head of the fetus-fetishizing table. Stand back!:
The new chairman of a secretive pro-life Parliamentary caucus is pledging to rekindle the abortion debate in Canada and bring “more value” to the lives of unborn children.
Although Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said he’s not interested in reopening the divisive issue, Winnipeg MP Rod Bruinooge told The Canadian Press people need to be better educated about Canada’s abortion stance, which he says puts the country in a “class of its own.”
“Secretive pro-life Parliamentary caucus”. Well, it’s no secret that there’s a cabal of fetus humpers in Parliament; most are in the CPC but there are also some turncoat anti-choice assholes in the Liberal Party. (Note to Iggy: time to clean house.)
And so what? The little parliamentary scab known as the “Pro-Life Caucus” has been festering away for years, oozing the usual repetitive rhetoric about how “Canada wants to re-open The Debate!” Oh, sure. Sure we do.
If Canada was so keen to “re-open The Debate”, there wouldn’t be a need for a separate “Pro-Life Caucus”, would there, now? And it most certainly wouldn’t have to be “secretive”. What’s with the secrecy, anyway? If the “Pro-Life Caucus” promotes something Canadians really want, why aren’t we allowed to know more about it so we can all get in on its incredible awesomeness?
Bruinooge is right about one thing: Canada is in a class of its own. With no regressive abortion laws, not-a-one, we lead the world in keeping the pearl-clutching, crotch-sniffing nanny state out of women’s private lives. And that’s a status quo most Canadians can live with.
UPDATE: Impolitical has an interesting take. It’s too true — Conservatives just. don’t. get it. They’re becoming more like their GOP role models every day.
