Help Campaign Life Coalition continue their vital work: LifeFunder

(LifeSiteNews) – Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) has published a “Party Policy Comparison” chart so Ontarians can examine which party aligns most with their values ahead of the June 2 provincial election. 

The chart, which appears on the CLC’s “Vote Pro-Life Ontario” website, breaks down the political stances of the Progressive Conservative Party (PC), the New Blue Party, the Ontario Party, the Liberal Party, the New Democratic Party (NDP), and the Green Party on the issues of the sanctity of human life, euthanasia, free speech, conscience rights, parental rights, vaccine mandates, LGBT ideology, and drugs.  

Abortion and Euthanasia 

On the issue of the “Sanctity of Human Life,” which focuses on abortion, the chart shows that all parties, except for the New Blue Party and the Ontario Party, support abortion up until the “moment of birth.”  

The New Blue Party and the Ontario Party are the only parties that espouse explicitly pro-life views and policy proposals, with the New Blue affirming the “dignity of human life from conception,” while the Ontario Party emphasizes that the “right to life is the most important human right, from which all other rights are derived.” 

On the policy front, the Ontario Party desires to expand funding for crisis pregnancy centers and introduce measures that support mothers who are seeking to put their children up for adoption. 

According to the chart, the incumbent PC party seeks to maintain the “status quo of abortion-on-demand throughout all 9 months of pregnancy,” through procedures “fully funded by the taxpayer,” whereas the Green Party wants to go even further and “expand the number of abortion clinics in Ontario.” 

A similar trend is noticed between the parties on the issue of euthanasia, with the New Blue Party and the Ontario Party once again being the only parties that directly condemn the practice of state-sanctioned assisted suicide.

Free Speech 

On the issue of free speech, the New Blue and Ontario parties both seek to repeal the “Bubble Zone” legislation that has criminalized pro-life advocacy in front of abortion clinics. The chart explains that while the PCs have not supported the legislation in the same way the Liberal and NDP parties have, they have not taken any “action to repeal the censorship law” and are currently “pursuing criminal charges against a Catholic priest for peacefully demonstrating in front of an abortion mill.” 

Conscience Rights 

The Ontario Party is the only party to have an official policy in favor of conscience rights, saying that if elected the party will “Ensure conscience rights protections for health care workers that will safeguard their jobs should they choose not to participate in any procedures, such as abortion or euthanasia.”

While the New Blue Party has yet to unveil an “official policy,” the chart does explain that the “Leader strongly supports conscience rights” in a manner similar to that of the Ontario Party.  

According to the chart, the PCs have “tacitly supported” compelling doctors to “refer” patients for procedures they personally oppose, while the Liberal and NDP parties both explicitly supported doing so. 

Parental Rights and LGBT Ideology 

Both the New Blue and Ontario parties have taken a strong stance in favor of affirming “parents” as the “primary educators of their children,” while ensuring that the values each parent decides for their children are respected under the law. 

All the other parties support the implementation of “transgender and homosexual ideology” in public and Catholic schools, with Premier Doug Ford’s PCs having already implemented pro-LGBT directives for Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum despite “promising” to “repeal” the former Liberal Party’s “sex-ed” curriculum when elected in 2018.  

Both the Ontario Party and the New Blue Party will remove “Gender Identity Theory” from the Ontario public school curriculum, with the Ontario Party promising to make it “illegal for any teacher, school administrator, or any school board official to teach, disseminate or promote materials to students that explicitly or implicitly state: Men (male) and women (female) do not exist as separate, biological, realities.”

The Ontario Party also lists policy prescriptions that would make it illegal to administer vaccinations to children without parental consent.

Is the Conservative Party of Canada giving pro-life candidates the cold shoulder in this year's leadership race?

That's what many Canadians have been left to wonder after the CPC recently announced that two conservative, pro-life candidates, Grant Abraham and Joseph Bourgault, would not be eligible to have their names officially placed on the ballot for party leader, even after seemingly meeting all requirements to do so.

Could this be a case of the CPC establishment arbitrarily picking winners and losers in the ongoing leadership election? And, if so, are true conservatives like Abraham and Bourgault the ones being unfairly targeted?

We must ask ourselves -- and the CPC -- these questions.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on the Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) of the Conservative Party to immediately reinstate Grant Abraham and Joseph Borgault onto the ballot for party leader in this year's election immediately.

While Grant Abraham, an attorney from British Columbia and Joseph Bourgault, a businessman from Saskatchewan, may not be as well-known as some of their opponents running for Conservative Party Leader, they still managed, with hard work, determination, and grassroots support, to meet all of the stated requirements for their names to be faithfully added to the official CPC leadership ballot for this year's election on September 10th.

According to the CPC, these requirements are for candidates to raise $300,000 and obtain 500 petition signatures -- both of which Abraham and Bourgault actually achieved.

Abraham actually had raised $300,000 for the entry fee, in addition to submitting 598 petition signatures, and, likewise, Bourgault raised nearly $400,000, and submitted over 1,000 petition signatures.

SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the CPC now!

Yet even so, the CPC confirmed to the candidates late last weekend that neither had made the final cut because they added a 15% "administration fee" in addition to the $300,000 -- making the actual total they would have needed to raise closer to $350,000 (which, remarkably, still wouldn't explain why at least Bourgault was denied access to the ballot).

Abraham has gone on record declaring that this was false advertising by the party, and that the additional administration fee was never actually communicated to them by the CPC prior to their rejection.

Only four pro-life candidates entered the race for CPC leader this year, and two of them were Abraham and Bourgault.

A third, MP Marc Dalton, failed to meet the fundraising requirements set forth by the party, and a fourth, former leadership candidate and current MP Leslyn Lewis, made it onto the ballot.

So, is the CPC squeezing out conservative, pro-life candidates wherever possible? Are they breaking their own rules to suit the party's establishment, instead of the Canadian people?

It seems that fake conservatives in the CPC establishment are guilty of the same corrupt, power-hungry tendencies they often criticize Liberals for embracing.

Conservatives must demand justice: SIGN and SHARE this petition demanding that members of the Conservative Party's LEOC take immediate action to reinstate Abraham and Bourgault onto the official ballot for CPC Leader.

Both Abraham and Bourgault intend to appeal this grossly unethical and ideologically-discriminatory decision themselves, but they also need support from Canadians like YOU to get the message across!

Thank you!

Vaccine Mandates 

Under the PCs, Ontario has already seen the implementation of vaccine passports, vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and some of the longest lockdowns in North America. The Liberal, NDP, and Green parties all support such measures, while the Ontario and New Blue Parties strongly oppose them.  

The New Blue Party has gone as far as stating that they will pass legislation to make vaccine passports illegal.

The Liberal Party has taken the strongest stance on the experimental abortion-tainted COVID injections, with leader Steven Del Duca stating his party will require the shot for children to attend public school.  

Drugs 

While often considered a less contentious issue than the others, state-funded establishments where people can legally consume hard drugs such as heroin and crack cocaine has the support of the Green, PC, Liberal, and NDP parties. The PC, Liberal, and NDP parties have also come out in favor of the “decriminalization” of hard drugs despite two years of record drug overdose deaths, particularly among young people.

At the moment, the Ontario Party does not have an official policy on the legalization of drugs, while the New Blue has come out in opposition to both the decriminalization of hard drugs and the allowance of legal drug injection sites.  

A spokesman for Campaign Life Coalition told LifeSiteNews that the chart is available in printable PDF form and that he encourages pro-lifers to print them out and hand it to their pro-life friends, relatives, and fellow parishioners.
