Fetus fetishists have to be doubly disappointed today. Not only did Dear Leader turn his back on the cause of fetal rights, he did so by aborting a defenseless unborn private member's bill.
Justice Minister Rob Nicholson announced Monday that the government will draft a new bill to replace Bill C-484, the Unborn Victims of Crime Act, so that it closes the debate about fetal rights and focuses instead on penalizing criminals who harm pregnant women.So the door is closed on fetal rights. But what about the rights of unborn bills? Who speaks for them? C-484 was well into its 3rd trimester (having passed second reading this spring), which would technically make this a late term abortion. Only a ruthless hypocrite like Stephen Harper could so mercilessly trample on his 'base' by simultaneously robbing fetuses and unborn bills of their God-given right to life. For shame.
