A significant portion of the Conservative caucus may support that effort: anti-abortion groups Campaign Life Coalition and Right Now claim to have helped elect 45 anti-abortion Tory MPs.

If all their efforts come to fruition, it is possible that Scheer could be replaced by a more forcefully pro-life leader, backed by single-issue faith-based groups.

Let's not mince words: that would be the death knell for the Conservative party. When Angus Reid asked Canadians how a politician's faith or beliefs impacted their opinion of him or her in the recent election, 51 per cent said coverage of Scheer's views — which centered mostly on abortion — had a negative impact.
