OTTAWA—Beset by questions over whether his social conservative positions lost Andrew Scheer the election, the Conservative leader is being attacked by social conservatives for failing to stand up for them.

The Campaign Life Coalition, an anti-abortion organization with clout, accused Scheer of "abandoning his principles" by failing to stand against equal marriage rights and access to abortion.

"If Scheer had stood firm on his principles, not apologized for them, and told the hostile, Trudeau-loving apologists in the media to go jump in the lake, he would have endeared himself much more towards that large swathe of mushy-middle voters," wrote Jack Fonseca, the Campaign Life Coalition's director of political operations, in a post-election memo.
