The Spectator: Tim Hudak has “questionable judgment”
Because it’s not so much about Hudak’s personal beliefs as it is about his slippery response when confronted with evidence of his views. It turns out that Hudak told anti-abortion advocates in 1995 that he is “solidly” opposed to abortion. In 2009, his representatives told another Conservative advocacy group, the Association for Reformed Political action, that he is “pro-life” and actually signed a petition calling for the defunding of abortions. Rather than simply acknowledging his position, Hudak at first said he couldn’t remember signing the petition, later admitting he “may have” done so, but doesn’t favour revisiting the issue.
