Interim leader Candice Bergen informed Conservatives to avoid commenting on the US Supreme Court leak that indicates Roe v. Wade may be overturned.

“It would be inappropriate to comment on matters before US courts,” Bergen stated.

“That is why Conservatives will not be commenting on the leaked opinions from the Supreme Court of the United States.”

Bergen continued, stating Conservatives’ position on the matter hasn’t changed since Prime Minister Harper’s time, and they have no intention of reopening the debate in Canada.

“The only ones reopening this debate are the Liberals, and Justin Trudeau is once again using women’s reproductive rights to wedge and divide Canadians,” Bergan said.

Indeed, some Liberal members immediately jumped on this American leak to virtue signal about women’s rights and Roe v. Wade. In fact, members across all party lines have since jumped on the bandwagon.

Justin Trudeau, Melanie JolyJagmeet Singh, and Andrea Horwath all put out pro-choice stances on the issue of abortion in response to the US leak. Commenters in their replies were quick to note the blatant contradiction these leaders revealed in doing so, particularly between their support of bodily autonomy for abortion but not when it comes to experimental mRNA vaccines.

Subsequently, some conservative MPs disregarded Bergen’s call to avoid the issue long after these comments, though they appear to be all pro-choice.

Liberal-light conservative candidate Jean Charest stated, “I am pro-choice. A gov’t under my leadership will not support legislation restricting reproductive rights.”

Shortly following that, another CPC candidate, Scott Aitchison, tweeted out that he “will always defend a women’s right to choose. Any efforts to restrict access to abortion would have terrible consequences for the health of women, families, and our country.”

Conservative leadership frontrunner Pierre Poilievre has not commented nor acknowledged the debate.
