No Hidden Agenda

I know exactly what it is like to be staring at the future you’ve worked so hard towards and suddenly finding out you’re pregnant.

For me, it was as I was articling on Bay street, trying to get ready to write the Bar exam. This was the starting line of my entire career and now people were telling me that I was being shackled to the starting blocks, never to run. 

Person after person told me I had to choose. My baby or my career.

I look at my beautiful daughter now and I am so grateful that I had the support of the key people in my life that told me they would be there for me no matter what I chose. I won’t pretend it wasn’t a challenge to build a successful law career with a family, but I am grateful every day that I did. 

In Canada right now, a country that claims to give women choice, so many don’t feel they have one. Just as I was, they are told they can’t “have it all.” I can’t imagine being in a young woman's shoes today, facing an employment crisis, cost of living crunch, and a housing crisis.

I am pro-life. I am not ashamed to say it. Most of my friends are pro-choice. We are not afraid to discuss these issues, and there are so many things we agree on. These are issues that concern us all.

When we are afraid of talking about important topics, we don’t do anything to improve life for Canadian women. That’s why I put forward a “no hidden agenda” platform on abortion in the 2020 race. I stand by those policies and would put forward the same four if elected leader now.

  • I will fight for the value of every girl through banning the misogynistic practice of sex-selective abortions.
  • I will protect vulnerable women by criminalizing coerced abortions. 
  • I will increase funding for pregnancy centres.
  • And I will end abortion funding overseas and focus Canadian funding on actually helping women and girls overseas thrive.

I will always support free votes on conscience issues in the House of Commons, so Conservative MPs will not be whipped to vote one way or the other. But I believe our party can get behind these common sense policies that the majority of Canadians agree on.

I will also be putting forward a comprehensive plan to help pregnant women with the added expenses of pregnancy and being a new mother. I believe this is something that can unite us as Conservatives and Canadians.

What do you think? Do you agree with my “no hidden agenda plan?”

Let’s stand up as a party with clear and compassionate policies that we aren’t afraid to defend.
