Justin Trudeau, the leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, attended Planned Parenthood Ottawa’s fundraiser last week, along with other Grit MPs and some from the New Democrats.
The event was reported by Cynhia Munster on the ipolitics website, under the headline, “In the City: Planned parenthood fundraiser draws big laughs.”
The apparent source of the “laughs” was the raffle prize, a sex toy – a vibrator – won by Trudeau’s special assistant, Tommy Desfossés.
While Trudeau has repeatedly referred to himself as a faithful Catholic in the past, his attendance at the Planned Parenthood event didn’t surprise pro-life leaders.
“Why is this news?” commented John Hof, the head of United for Life B.C. “Where else can Justin Trudeau go? He’s kicked everybody else out of his party but the pro-abortionists.”

Hof was referring to Trudeau’s announcement earlier this year that pro-life candidates would no longer be welcome in the Liberal Party.
Hof pointed to the lewdness that he said characterizes pro-abortion events, recalling seeing pro-abortion protesters in his local Victoria carrying signs with slogans like, “Fist Your Friends,” and “Anal Sex Saves.”
“What does anal sex have to do with abortion, and what do vibrators have to do with Planned Parenthood?” Hof said. “It’s all about making sex solely about individual pleasure. Not about sex as a gift that allows us to share with God in an act of creating life.”
Mary Ellen Douglas, organizer for Campaign Life Coalition of Canada said that while Trudeau appears comfortable with abortionists and with sex toys, “The only things he’s uncomfortable with are life and democracy.”
As for the sexual raffle prize, she said it fits with Trudeau’s recent flippant, and much-criticized remarks about Canada’s fighter jets as phallic symbols.
“This is not the kind of thing we want to associate with leaders of our country,” she added. “It’s childish and immature. But this country has to grow up. It cannot escape the consequences of four million abortions since 1969.”
