Oops, thanks the regina mom!
"watching the tide roll away"
From the ARCC chart hyperlinked above by "the regina mom":
Total % of anti-choice MPs after 2008 election: 38%
Total % of MPs whose stand on choice is unknown: 21%
Now, do you know very many pro-choice MPs who are secretive about their position? This suggests that those who are keeping mum (pun not intended) do not have women's interests at heart.
That 59% spells trouble.

Ya, I thought the same thing, at first, though some are not known because they are new.
However, I get different numbers than joyce does, assuming she is correct about there being only 58 Liberals who are pro-choice. The Bloc have 49 seats, the NDP has 37 seats so in my numbers world that is 144 Bloc NDP and Liberals who are prochoice. Not 125. And that is not adding the CPC numbers who are pro-choice. And if there are 46 CPC who are pro-choice, that put us well over a majority of pro-choice MP's
Another long one...I love these C484 threads, by the way, because they always stay on topic! But we'll start a new one anyhow. :)
