The Canadian federal election campaign has only been officially live for one day, and already things are starting to get pretty heated between the two major political parties. Early on Thursday morning, the official Conservative Party Twitter page accused Justin Trudeau of being anti-abortion in his personal views, but Canadians were quick to stand-up for the Prime Minister.\nIn their Thursday-morning Twitter post, the Conservative Party shared a tweet from Liberal candidate Carolyn Bennett, who was calling out Andrew Scheer for having an anti-abortion candidate and campaigner in his party. In response, the Conservative Party clapped-back, “[Justin Trudeau] notes that he is personally very opposed to abortion,” adding a link to a 2011 article from CTV News.\nThe Conservative Party then added, “More fear and smear from an increasingly desperate campaign.”\nThis comes only weeks after Andrew Scheer came under fire from the public for failing to make his position on abortion and same-sex marriage clear, after a 2005 video of him denouncing gay marriage went viral.\nAfter days of dodging the press, Scheer finally spoke out about his stance, saying only that his Conservative government would not “reopen these divisive social issues.”\n“[Justin Trudeau] notes that he is personally very opposed to abortion” - https://t.co/X1nNFq6eYiMore fear and smear from an increasingly desperate campaign. #cdnpoli https://t.co/0rsDzikLCM— Conservative Party (@CPC_HQ) September 12, 2019\nWhile the Conservative Party were probably expecting a considerable reaction to their tweet on Thursday morning, they may have been surprised to realize that many of the responses were in defense of Trudeau, with a number of Canadians arguing that as long as Trudeau’s personal opinions on abortion didn’t affect everyone else, then they were irrelevant!\nOne Twitter user responded to say, "[Trudeau] notes that he is personally very opposed to abortion, but still believes nobody can tell a woman what she should do with her body.’ Way to cherry pick what is already a paraphrase...This is really sad @CPC_HQ.”\nAnother had a similar opinion, tweeting, “But he doesn’t think his beliefs should bind the rest of the country. That’s how he and @liberal_party differ from you and @AndrewScheer.”\nBut he doesn’t think his beliefs should bind the rest of the country. That’s how he and @liberal_party differ from you and @AndrewScheer #ONpoli #MissPoli #MississaugaLakeshore #CDNpoli @StellaAmbler @RudyCuzzetto @fordnation— Port Credit 🐓🍷🛠 (@PtCreditVoter) September 12, 2019\n"He notes that he is personally very opposed to abortion, but still believes nobody can tell a woman what she should do with her body."

Rachel wants to take away mybrught to choose. THAT is the difference.— Just call me Eva (@So_damntired) September 12, 2019\n"I can't do that because it is against my brliefs"✅"You can't do that because it is against MY beliefs"❌That is the difference if you took the time to look into it.— Catcher of the Rye 🇨🇦 (@whiskeylover99) September 12, 2019\nThe difference is, the Liberals, Greens, and NDP will not infringe on Canadians right to choose.— Graham Gaw (@GawGraham) September 12, 2019\nSeveral Canadian Twitter users also took the opportunity to remind Andrew Scheer that it had taken him days to speak up about his opinion on abortion in Canada, and commended the Prime Minister for his honesty and openness on the matter.\nOne Canadian wrote, “At least he's honest about it! Scheer wouldn't answer the question!!"\nAnother added, “Yes he did say that. He was very clear on his position and it did not take him 8 days answer. I saw @AndrewScheer response and it was not very convincing. You are both wrong. It is simple. It is nobodies of your business [sic].”\nExcept he had the balls to say no libéral will change the laws, they have to be pro choice. When asked multiple times you wouldn’t do the same— nickii 🇨🇦☘️ (@Nicki_Nickii9) September 12, 2019\nYes he did say that. He was very clear on his position and it did not take him 8 days answer.

Nit we all know what he's got planned ! #cdnpoli #elxn43— David McRae (@dmc1701) September 12, 2019\nNot personally supporting abortion is fine. Forcing the rest of us to live our lives based on how YOU feel about abortion is not. Do you understand the difference between personal beliefs and oppressing others with your your beliefs?— freefall (@freefall354) September 12, 2019\nHis personal views on abortion are not campaigning on a pro-life agenda. You, and those of many of your candidates, are. There's a big difference.— Garth Wickens (@wickens_garth) September 12, 2019\nThis isn’t the first time the Conservative Party official Twitter page has attempted to drag Justin Trudeau and the Liberals and faced criticism from the Canadian public. Shortly after Scheers anti-same-sex marriage video went viral, the party responded by tweeting a list of allegedly homophobic comments by Liberal candidates and MP’s, which was met with a highly critical response.\nOverall, this election is predicted to be possibly one of the nastiest in Canadian history, with all parties doing whatever it takes to win over the Canadian public before October!\nThere are stories everywhere.
