US Media Finally Notices How Justin Trudeau Punishes Pro-Life Movement

David Krayden Ottawa Bureau Chief

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s routinely offends pro-lifers in his own country, but now U.S. media outlets are noticing just how severely Trudeau has sidelined people who don’t support abortion.

As The Daily Caller reported on Saturday, Trudeau defended his government’s policy of denying Canada Summer Jobs funding to groups who will not explicitly indicate they support “reproductive rights.” Trudeau not only said pro-life thinking is contrary to Liberal government policy but out of step with Canadian society.

Former White House advisor Sebastian Gorka calledTrudeau’s intransigence “reprehensible.”

The story was also picked-up on Monday morning’s “Fox & Friends.” The hosts noted that left-wing social policies often originate in Canada and are exported to  the U.S.

Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy added: “What happens in Canada often comes down to us. This is an effort to silence pro-lifers… This is a sign of intolerance. If you have a pro-life view you’re not welcome to share it or else you’re kicked out of this program.”

Brian Kilmeade asked, “What message is he [Trudeau] trying to send to us.

March for Life organizer Jeanne Mancini was also a guest on the segment. She suggested Trudeau might come down to see how Americans feel about abortion.

“Because he will see who’s really out of touch with mainstream America,” Mancini said. “We’ve lost over 60 million Americans to abortion. To the prime minister, I would just really want to talk to him.”

Trudeau has drawn criticism over his decision to pay-off confessed killer and former terrorist Omar Khadr with a $10.5 million settlement and he created a Twitter storm of ridicule when the prime minister praised the legacy of Cuban despot Fidel Castro, following the dictator’s death in 2016.
