The Liberals’ motion concerning the Government’s G8 initiative was defeated. 138 MPs voted in favour of it and 144 MPs voted against it. Yesterday the government took a stand against the anti-life ideology so prevalent in Canada, and opted for the truth: that abortion does not help women. The Canadian government is committed to helping women and children in impoverished countries, and for that we’re proud.
MPs’ email inboxes and mailboxes were flooded with messages from Canadians like you urging their MPs to vote against the motion. Thank you to those who took the time to let your MP know how you feel about this issue. You truly made a difference. This is proof that MPs listen to their constituents, so do it more often. I will be writing an email thanking my MP for voting against the motion; it’s good for our politicians to hear positive feedback too.
