Press release - Bernier reopens abortion debate

Winkler, MB, May 17, 2023 — The Leader of the People’s Party of Canada and Portage-Lisgar by-election candidate, Maxime Bernier, announced his stance on abortion at a press conference this morning in Winkler, MB. He was joined by Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, a former PPC candidate and prominent advocate for common-sense social conservatism.

“Many people are surprised to learn that there is no law regulating abortion in Canada. No law whatsoever,” Bernier remarked. “Our governments regulate almost everything in our lives, including such ridiculous things like plastic straws. But there is a complete legal void when it comes to killing unborn human beings.”

“I find this abhorrent. It’s the same as allowing infanticide,” said Bernier, referencing late-term abortion.

“It’s time to join the civilized world. It’s time to stop listening to hysterical feminists who have hijacked this issue for too long. The other establishment parties either fully support abortion at all stages of pregnancy or they are too afraid of pro-abortion activists to raise the issue. We’re not afraid. The PPC welcomes a debate on abortion.”

Bernier announced that if elected MP for Portage-Lisgar, he would table at the first available opportunity the Protection of Preborn Children Act, a private member’s bill to amend Section 287 of the Criminal Code.

The bill was written by Tyler Thompson and another PPC candidate, Paul Mitchell, and was part of their election campaign in 2019. It would limit the legal availability of abortion to 24 weeks maximum, and outlaw late-term abortions unless the mother’s life or health are at risk, there has been rape or abuse, or if the baby has a lethal abnormality or no brain function.

Bernier will host a campaign stop in Winkler with Tyler Thompson later today.
