A pro-lifer challenged him during a town-hall speech. Trudeau spoke about his efforts to remove pro-life organizations from the government's student summer job grants, saying, "An organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women's rights by removing rights to abortion ... is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society in Canada."
On January 5, the Toronto Star reported that Toronto Right to Life filed a lawsuit against the Canadian federal government for restricting pro-life organizations from summer job grants.
Trudeau, though baptized Catholic, has been a staunch promoter of liberal, heterodox ideology. He actively supports abortion, homosexuality, gender dysphoria and Islam.
He also said, "Of course, you're more than allowed to have whatever beliefs you like, but when those beliefs lead to actions determined to restrict a woman's right to control her own bodies [sic], that's where I, and I think we, draw the line as a country."
Jeanne Mancini, president of the annual March for Life in Washington D.C., told FOX News on Monday, "I'd love to extend an invitation to the prime minister to come to the March for Life on Friday because he will see who's really out of touch with mainstream America."
Though not addressing the situation in Canada per se, Mancini pointed out that a large majority of Americans prefer increased restriction on abortion access.
Catholic news site LifeSiteNews created a piece in December called, "A quick list of Justin Trudeau's tyrannical acts against life, family and Christians."
Just one example from the list: in March 2017, Trudeau announced the Canadian government was giving $650 million to promote contraception and abortion in developing countries.
Trudeau has been slighted by some Canadians for his liberal bias. One op-ed said, "He's not a details guy when it comes to ethics nor the economy nor national security. It's as if his thinking on most subjects never evolved beyond some great discussions over a bong during freshman year."
