A social conservative group plans to force the Conservative party to change its position on abortion. Here's how - 2021-03-08
OTTAWA—An anti-abortion group is planning an end-run around federal Conservative brass to force a vote on the party's abortion stance.
In an email to supporters, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) — an influential social conservative group — said it hoped to push the party to abandon its pledge that a Conservative government would not support a law regulating access to abortion.
But the email suggests social conservatives did not find enough support to have that debate at the party's upcoming virtual policy convention. So now the group is switching gears to try to embed anti-abortion language into the party's constitution.
