Abortion and the Liberal leaders

Everywoman's abortion clinic, Commercial Dr., Vancouver
There's a question that should be asked of the remaining B.C. Liberal leadership candidates before a new premier is chosen Saturday. But it won't be asked:

Who do Vancouver Abortion Clinics Report to…exactly?

That's the question being asked by the folks, namely Ted Gerk, at Stop Abortion Censorship.

Gerk has been a thorn in the side of B.C. abortionists for ages, and he's currently hammering away at them and the B.C. government to find out just how many abortions are performed in B.C. and who the abortuaries report to.

If you believe the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, there were 211 abortions in the health region in 2009, which is preposterous considering there are at least 15,000 abortions a year in B.C.

"It all boils down to secrecy versus right to know," Gerk writes. "Thanks to British Columbia’s Freedom of Information laws, the insidiousness of censorship grows ever deeper."

Do Christy Clark, George Abbott, Kevin Falcon or Mike de Jong want to show some real leadership before Saturday's vote?
