OAKVILLE, Ont. – Premier Dalton McGuinty is urging Opposition Leader Tim Hudak to come clean about his stance on abortion.
In Oakville today, the Liberal premier said voters are looking for clarity on the important issue ahead of the fall election.
McGuinty says he supports a woman’s right to choose and all party leaders owe it to voters to be clear about their position on the issue.
Hudak appears to be shying away from his previous anti-abortion stance, saying he doesn’t plan to re-open the issue if he wins the Oct. 6 vote.
But he has refused to say if he still opposes abortion, walking away from the microphone Monday when reporters asked repeatedly if he still considered himself pro-life.
