Among all of the leaders on the world stage, Justin Trudeau primarily stands out for a single reason: His abortion extremism. As I’ve noted before, he misses no opportunity to push and promote abortion, and it is one of the few subjects aside from his own perceived virtue that he seems genuinely passionate about. Unfortunately for Canadians, that passion is coupled with a profound ignorance on the subject—Trudeau seems genuinely unaware that Canada is the only democracy without any abortion laws whatsoever, and that the status quo he is defending is grotesquely unique.
His arrogance was on full display this week when he attempted to shoehorn a discussion on abortion into a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence on NAFTA and issues related to China. Trudeau was concerned about American “backsliding” on the issue and claimed that “Canadians” are also very concerned about it, even though this projection is primarily a figment of his imagination, where everyone constantly agrees with him.
