OTTAWA - A Conservative MP says anti-bullying initiatives across the country should also protect fetuses.
Maurice Vellacott, who represents the Saskatchewan riding of Saskatoon-Wanuskewin, says abortion procedures are far worse than any schoolyard or neighbourhood bullying.
He calls it the “cruellest of ironies” that there’s no protection in Canada for fetuses at any stage of pregnancy.
"In this case, it’s in every case a terminal victim as a result of the bullying that occurs," Vellacott said in an interview Thursday.
"It seems almost too obvious to state, but it’s bullying in the worst degree."
