In a letter to his fellow New Democrats, NDP President Norman MacAskill of Cambridge, Ontario has called for support for “Citizens for Choice.”

He reminds party members of the repeated affirmations at NDP conventions of support for abortion on demand and the prominent role NDP’ers have played all across Canada “in the struggle for abortion rights.”

The need for Citizens for Choice is critical at this time, the NDP President states, in order to prevent restrictive legislation in Ottawa.
