Letter: Trudeau’s abortion stance problematic

By: Letter to the Editor

Editor’s note: The following is an open letter to federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau.

I have several reasons to write you, but the most important and salient point of this letter is my discussions with voters who are concerned with your denying a person the right to choose using their conscience as a guide. Not one person I have talked to agrees with your stand.

With all due respect sir, you cannot command a person’s conscience to agree with yours. To do so is wrong and not the Liberal way.

You are a great leader, a fine man and likely the next prime minister if my work has anything to do with it.

However, I also feel that you are wrong in this instance, and I think like all great leaders, if after examining your conscience, you find you might have erred, admit it.

It would make me feel better and it will allow many who will have to examine their conscience before they vote to have an easier time at the polls.
