[Edmonton Journal] Jason Kenney says the UCP won’t debate abortion access if elected to government after an anti-abortion advocacy group lauded his party as a chance at the “most pro-life legislature in decades.”

“Amongst the so-called social conservatives I know in the party, they’re not talking about that issue,” he said Tuesday. “They just want the government to leave them alone when it comes to certain constitutionally protected freedoms of conscience and religion.

“My sense is that our candidates are focused on jobs and the economy,” he added.

But anti-abortion group the Wilberforce Project has trumpeted the UCP nomination process.

“We now need to keep the candidates who won their nominations accountable and on track to enacting pro-life policy should they win in the general election,” said a February blog post written by the organization’s director of political action, Cameron Wilson.

Kenney’s refusal to debate the issue doesn’t change the Wilberforce Project’s stance, Wilson said.

“To my knowledge, he is still a firm believer in respecting the rights to conscience of his MLAs,” he said in an interview Tuesday.
