Rona Ambrose receives praise from enthusiasts
|Minister for Status of Women, Rona Ambrose|
In a show of camaraderie, many thousands of Canadians have shown an outpouring of respect for the Minister for Staus of Women, Rona Ambrose. Recently, Ms. Ambrose has suffered an influx of negative press from opponents and critics after voting in favour of Motion 312, a motion to define the moment a fetus becomes a human being. The resulting criticisms have created a divide between many Canadians.
Mike Schouten, director of WeNeedaLaw.ca, has shown his appreciation and support for Ms. Ambrose since her vote: “Minister Ambrose is a respected woman and cabinet minister who obviously made a decision based on her conscience and the will of the people in her riding of Edmonton-Spruce Grove. [She] has stood up for equality many times and made it clear that unfair discrimination against females is a matter of great concern to her.” WeNeedaLaw.ca is campaigning for legislation regarding abortions.
Although the media has taken a radical stance on Ms. Ambrose’s vote, the social media support has resulted in an expression of deserved appreciation and admiration for the minister and her hard work as Minister for Status of Women. Schouten notes that, “Canadians can be sure that the extremism of a few so-called-feminists who refuse to debate fundamental issues and who vilify anyone who does, do not speak for the majority and I’m greatly encouraged that tens of thousands of women and men are expressing support for Minister Ambrose.”
The conversation on life before birth continues to engage the citizens of Canada.
