I’m tired of the media throwing anti-abortion issues in with LGBTQ rights. 

While it’s understood that over 50% of Canadians support abortion rights there is also about 25% of Canadians who are pro-life and support some kind of protection for the unborn. This is a significant minority, more support than there is for many other minority issues in Canada today. 

Anti-abortion is also not just a religious issue as we know from a scientific viewpoint that we are dealing with a human life. 

Let’s keep these issues separate and rationally discuss them on their own merits just like the issue of capital punishment or any other ethical issue in society instead of making it a partisan polarization.
