The abortion issue has been getting renewed attention ahead of the October election, which could be one way the political conversation in the United States is flowing across the border — sometimes, with a little help from the Liberals.

Green party Leader Elizabeth May raised eyebrows on Monday when she told the CBC she would not whip votes or try to prevent anyone in her caucus from putting forward legislation on the issue, despite personally believing women should have access to safe and legal abortions.

That is in line with party policy, but then the Greens clarified that all candidates running under their banner are required to support abortion rights.
