On April 26th, The Abortion Debate Gets Briefly Re-Opened

Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth’s motion M-312 calling upon Parliament to debate whether an unborn child is a human being and the human rights implications of those findings, is scheduled for debate on April 26.

As Kady O'Malley notes through the link, I can't see the Harper gov. letting this one pass, even if the only result would be the striking of committees.  Presumably this whole exercise is to allow his SoCon wing to blow off a little steam.  The trick will be how he manages to engineer the motion's defeat without making it look too obvious.
