Abortion - A PM Harper Problem

It seems to be Conservative in The USA or Canada, your goals include controlling women. It is obscene the pieces of legislation these morality bullies are proposing.  Here in Canada, many federal Conservatives are opposed to abortion.  They are made up of almost all men.  
MP Stephen Woodworth
Tory MP Stephen Woodworth wants Parliament to create a committee of politicians whose task it will be to review a law that stops short of defining unborn children as "human beings."A committee of MPs has agreed to give Woodworth at least one hour of debate sometime in April. He will receive a second hour of debate sometime either in late spring or early fall.  Read more: 
This is nothing short of an end run around the debate.  To allow the further intrusion of the state into the lives of women. I don't care for abortion, but then you know its not me that has the biscuit in the oven.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has promised that there will be no changes to abortion laws in Canada.  It looks like he is about to break that promise.  They have a majority in the House of Commons.  Unless Harper tells his Ministers they have to vote against  MP Stephen Woodworth's proposed committee, it will pass.  What a mess that will become.

Birth Control Pills
For a glimpse into where this could lead think about what is happening in Arizona.  A bill will be coming before the Senate that will compel a woman to tell her boss she is taking birth control pills and why.  If she isn't taking them to control her acne or to control her hormones, her boss can fire her.  I'm not making this up. 

If a woman is taking birth control pills to prevent getting pregnant, her boss could fire her. Its that simple.  Of course that could mean she ends up having an abortion, but that's limited as well.  God forbid she has one and has complications, her boss will surely fire her then, but then he may have decided to fire her when she got pregnant anyway, so we may not have to worry about my previous point. 

The whole premise, being made by-in-large by men, is that you cannot stop having a baby. That includes, nothing that would prevent a pregnancy, having sex where the possibility of a baby isn't possible, ie enjoying sex for just the sex, wearing protection by either party (to prevent disease/illness) is abhorrent. 

Stephen Harper and disgraced CPC worker Michael Sona
It is astounding to read this stuff.  The USA has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the the western world. This despite the fact that US schools often only teach abstinence sex education or no sex education. Apparently teaching kids about sex is something that doesn't happen, and a boy and a girl first have sex on their wedding night. Don't even think about boy on boy or girl on girl.  And while you're at it, don't ever ever contemplate the idea of more than two opposite sex people having fun together. 

That's what we're going to get here in Canada.  14 Conservative ridings last year used Republican Voter contact firm Front Porch Strategies, the people behind the effort to define a  fetus as human being at conception.  They lost , but they will be back. They run 100's of anti-abortion campaigns every year, and they are winning. 

Stephen Harper may not let his MP get to second base this time.  Another Harper win in 2015 will surely see Harper's loyal following of MP's say to him "screw you, were going to deal with this," and they will.  Unless we stop them.

It's Taliban Steve! Women should obey their men (or any man).
