Former Liberal MP Tom Wappel on Justin Trudeau’s abortion edict: So much for freedom of conscience

Tom Wappel’s take on the new federal Liberal policy that excludes candidates who are not pro-choice on abortion. This issue has many competing “goods” (to use the language of “In Search of the Good”), namely, right to life, freedom of conscience and women’s right to control her health.) Of course, the Catholic teaching is clear on this issue.
