CTV reports that Conservative MP Merv Tweed (Brandon-Souris) will resign his seat at the end of the month. Campaign Life Coalition rates Tweed pro-life and according to the votes they track, has a 100% pro-life and pro-family voting record.
Toews and Vellacott also wear the pro-life label; Lee Richardson may be more difficult to pin down. At least Campaign Life was unable to. But in any case this is how the abortion debate ends. The people who want to make it don't stop. They just leave politics.
