OTTAWA – One of Canada's largest anti-abortion organizations is attacking the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership rules as a way of "silencing the pro-life community."

The Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) is backing four social conservatives in the leadership race and is telling its members that it is more important than ever to get involved in the campaign.

"We've been lied to by politicians who wanted our votes to win – and then had the door slammed in our faces after getting them elected – before," wrote CLC national president Jeff Gunnarson in a letter to supporters sent in recent weeks and obtained by the National Post. His organization is a lobby group that actively opposes abortion and gay marriage.
