The comment was made after Oosterhoff left question period to attend an anti-abortion rally on the front lawn of Queen's Park. Oosterhoff attended the rally with fellow PC MPPs Christina Mitas (Scarborough Centre) and Will Bouma (Brantford-Brant).

When the MPPs returned to question period, the issue was brought up in the house with the NDP asking Premier Doug Ford if he supports a woman's right to choose. Ford was also asked if he supported the views of the three MPPs.

Ford did not answer the question and referred it to Energy Minister Greg Rickford. Rickford avoided addressing questions, instead pivoting to a number of talking points including fighting the federal carbon tax.
