Pro choice, not a choice

Re: H.R. Drummond’s letter (The NEWS, August 12) about pro choice.

Thanks to Drummond for pointing out that “no one is allowed to impose their own idea of morality on anyone else” — except for Drummond perhaps, along with Justin Trudeau, who’s just imposed his will on all Liberal MPs by insisting that they all be pro choice.

Who’s kidding whom? This is precisely someone imposing his own idea of morality on others.

If Trudeau can’t allow his own members any choice but lip service, isn’t this the start of that “dangerous and slippery slope” that Drummond professes to abhor?

What’s next on the noble agenda? Cattle prods? Centralized control by an autocratic authority?

How easy it is for lofty idealism to degenerate into the next form of tyranny. No choice but pro-choice? No thanks.
