"I wasn't going to engage in a shouting match with them," said MP Stephen Woodworth after he was stopped mid-way through a presentation by shouting pro-abortion extremists March 13. This was not the first time he faced such opposition.
“My concern is there are these extremists who are so pre-occupied with the single issue of abortion that they are unwilling to listen to anyone else and they are willing to throw aside every other democratic value like freedom of speech and respectful dialogue,” Woodworth said.

These extremists seem to think “there’s a virtue in hatred and disrespect,” he said, noting he was speaking of the universal and equal dignity of every human being.
