At Convention, Conservatives Vote Against Opening Abortion Debate, Oppose Birthright Citizenship

Members also vote to remove funding for overseas abortion from foreign aid.

Conservative delegates have voted against reopening the abortion debate, defeating a resolution that would have removed wording from the party policy document that says there won’t be any legislation on abortion.

However, the delegates did vote to restore a Harper-era policy that ensured foreign aid funding didn’t fund abortion overseas.

The Conservatives also voted to end birthright citizenship – the idea that anyone born on Canadian soil gets Canadian citizenship.

The issue with the current law is that it encourages “birth tourism,” where people purposely travel to Canada in time with a pregnancy to ensure that their child attains Canadian citizenship, even without any prior connection to the country.

Now, the Conservative delegates have pushed for rules that would make sure at least one of the parents is a citizen or permanent residence for citizenship to be passed on to the child. Conservative MP Alice Wong spoke in support of the resolution, saying birth tourism takes resources away from the health system that should be going towards Canadians.

I read the baby’s heartbeat starts at 10 weeks.
At 16 weeks, it feels pain.
That’s the end of it for me.
Totally agree with the ”Anchor” baby situation. Although what happens when the guy lives and works here and the wife elsewhere and she arrives before giving birth? We’re back to the anchor baby.

“birth tourism” more like anchor babies

I agree with all this. Put abortion to rest. You don’t want an abortion, don’t have one, but stop telling women they can’t. I am 1000% behind stopping the birthright BS. It is time for the Conservatives to start working on stopping dual citizenship. You are either loyal to Canada or you are not. I have read stories over time of people not living in Canada, but coming back to get free health care when they need surgeries.

Similarly, if you don’t want a slave don’t have one.

Do you know that Canada is one of four countries that have no restriction what-so-ever on abortion which puts us in the company of such illustrious countries like North Korea, China and Vietnam.

Sounds like the Conservatives also plan on respecting the Canadian citizenship and our tax dollars, which the Lieberal/NDP party put in crackerjack boxes with free Canadian money to be handed out freely to anyone to use and abuse, as long as they will vote for Lieberals/NDP.

I’m glad that the “BIRTH TOURISM” issue has been recognized as a scam to circumvent immigration laws of Canada.

And what about that tax on the organic building block of the Universe? You know the one that forms the basis of all life on Earth. Yeah, that one that comprises 19% of your body. Crickets are made of carbon too.

I believe this is the same policy that the National Citizens Alliance has. Both the NCA and UPC are correct with this policy as it stops the tourism birthright. In Vancover there was a home where Chinese pregnant women came and holidayed near their due date in order to have their children hold Canadian citizenship.

SYLVAIN LAMOUREUX winner of most stupid argument for keeping abortion.

akin to “if you don’t want to have a murder, don’t have one” ….so therefore let not make murder illegal?
