A splinter in the pro-life movement has thrust "gestational" abortion legislation back into the pro-life conversation.Read the full story at The B.C. Catholic website.
Earlier this summer B.C. pro-life activist John Hof and Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) parted ways over this issue. Hof, the former president of CLCBC, favours the strategy, whereas CLC is militantly opposed.
Although he says he is adamantly against abortion in any case, Hof said supporting gestational law would save babies right now. "In Canada a pregnant mother can put her child on the train track for abortion for all nine months of pregnancy."
"There are no shortcuts (to outlawing abortion); it's not a footrace, it's a marathon," CLC president Jim Hughes told The B.C. Catholic. He insisted that gestational legislation doesn't work because politicians will ignore it.
