REGINA, Saskatchewan, November 4, 2011 ( – In advance of Saskatchewan’s provincial election this coming Monday, Nov. 7th, Campaign Life Coalition has released its ratings of candidates based on their views in the areas of life and family.

The organization rates all candidates with a green light (supportable), yellow light, or red light (unsupportable) based on their record and their responses to a questionnaire.

They questioned candidates on the funding of abortion, informed consent, the right of parents to withdraw their children from offensive classroom material, euthanasia, and conscience protections for medical professionals.

In response to the questionnaire, NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter told CLC that the NDP unequivocally supports abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion, and that these are guiding principles of the party.

Green Party leader Victor Lau wrote that the party’s official policy is to “fully support the woman’s right to choose [abortion],” to force taxpayers to fund abortions, and to compel salaried, government health care workers to participate in abortions even if it violates their religious beliefs and conscience.
