B.C. Liberal candidate Laurie Throness is beneath fireplace, once more, this time for controversial feedback about free contraception, evaluating the NDP’s plan to 1 that’s attempting to forestall poor individuals from getting pregnant.
Throness took half in an all-candidates debate for the Chilliwack-Kent driving on Wednesday, throughout which he was requested, “is it proper for the federal government to offer free contraception to everybody?”
A portion of the video was obtained by NEWS 1130. In it, Throness says that whereas he doesn’t “have an issue with contraception,” he doesn’t see it as a precedence.
“It’s not an ethical subject to me, however to me it’s a precedence subject. To me, it might not rank as excessive on the precedence record” to different medical companies and wishes, resembling surgical procedure, Throness says.
“And the opposite factor that I really feel about that is that it comprises a whiff of the previous eugenics factor the place poor individuals shouldn’t have infants and so we will’t power them to have contraception so we’ll give it to them without spending a dime,” Throness continues. “And perhaps they’ll have fewer infants so there will probably be fewer poor individuals sooner or later. And to me that comprises an odour that I don’t like and so I don’t actually assist what the NDP is doing there and that’s my reply.”
