Andrea Mrozek at ProWomanProLife on the defeat of the Liberal motion to require abortion as part of maternal health: “Bottom line: Abortion activists just lost a battle.” That’s rare and it’s very important. Or as Miss Mrozek says, “That’s always very good news.”

We are debating within the offices today, along with our friends at Campaign Life Coalition and Catholic Insight, whether this is a pro-life victory or a huge pro-abortion defeat. This internal debate will affect our cover, which is being remade in the wake of yesterday’s vote. We go to press in less than three hours.
