Erin O’Toole gun lobbies abortion women conservatives

“Erin O’Toole will fight harder for gun lobbies than he will for women”

From courting anti-choice special interest groups to voting for a bill that sought to criminalize causing injury or death to a “preborn child,” the Conservative leader’s record is sketchy.

Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller released a statement yesterday referencing Erin O’Toole’s record on supporting a woman’s right to choose across Canada, and his plan to repeal the Liberals’ ban on assault weapons. Miller stated that the Conservative Party leader would fight more for gun lobbies and anti-vaxxers than he will for women.

Miller, who’s the Liberal candidate for Ville-Marie—Le Sud-Ouest—Île-des-Sœurs in Montreal, retweeted a thread by Jennifer O’Connell, the Liberal candidate for Pickering-Uxbridge. She provides extensive examples of Erin O’Toole’s stance on abortion rights, from courting anti-choice special interest groups during the Conservative leadership race, to voting in favour of Bill C-225, “which tried to make it illegal to cause injury or death to a preborn child.” O’Connell refers to the last point as a “backdoor attempt at making abortion illegal.”
