Mr. Warawa, who represents the constituency of Langley (British-Columbia) in Ottawa, thinks Canadians should reopen the debate on abortion, and he has produced a video
to help Stephen Woodworth
, another Tory MP from Kitchener Center (Ontario), with his call for the creation of a committee in Parliament charged with studying questions related to the definition of a human being. Mr. Woodworth's motion
is set to be debated in September.
has in the past denounced the fact that Canada keeps company with countries such as China and North Korea in not restricting abortion. He believes Canada should restrict the practice "to the greatest extent possible".
His position is contrary to that of his own Conservative Party, which states that the debate on abortion should not be reopened. As a matter of fact, even the Conservative Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has said he will vote against
Mr. Woodworth's motion, which has been denounced
by the Canadian Medical Association as being "a backdoor path" toward adopting laws restricting abortion.
