The Canadian Press:

Stephane Dion vowed Thursday that Liberals will block passage of a Tory bill that some fear might re-open the dormant abortion debate.

“I want to give my word to all the women of Canada that the Liberal Party of Canada is against to reopen woman’s right to decide as a debate,” the Liberal leader pledged.

[…]

Dion indicated that he shares the view that the bill would reopen the abortion debate and vowed: “We will not allow that to happen.”
