TORONTO, June 6, 2012 ( — Stephen Woodworth, the Member of Parliament that proposed a motion to debate the personhood of the unborn child in Parliament, has postponed his motion till the fall. With the debate scheduled for tomorrow, and a vote next Wednesday, Woodworth made a last-minute exchange with liberal MP Scott Brison, and his motion is now 14th in precedence.

Woodworth’s office told LifeSiteNews that there is no date currently scheduled for re-opening the debate, but M-312 may be addressed in September.

Woodworth told reporters that the rescheduling was done because his mother was ill, and so he was not sure if he would be able to be present in the House for the final hour of the debate.
