Conservative MP calls for leadership candidates to consider anti-eugenicist policies
TNC: 'Conservative MP Arnold Viersen has started a petition demanding Conservative leadership candidates advocate for pro-life beliefs and positions.
'“As a pro-life member of Parliament who speaks regularly on life issues, I want to make sure that the leadership candidates bring forward policies and debate ideas around life in the womb, parliament, freedoms and end of life care,” said Viersen in a statement on Thursday.
Viersen said that there are five ways Conservative leadership candidates can promote pro-life ideas.
'He said the first is by adopting policies that save lives. These policies, he said, could be restrictions on abortions, measures supporting low-income pregnant women to help them choose life and methods to raise awareness about adoption. '
