Shut the expletive up

Conservative Senator Nancy Ruth used a naughty word to chastise a meeting of international women’s equality – the nomenclature guaranteed to send shivers up the spine of sane people everywhere – rights groups. Ruth, a feminist and supporter of a woman’s right to murder her unborn child, fears that this could become an election issue. Perish the thought of the most pressing ethical outrage of our time becoming an election issue; whatever next.

“We’ve got five weeks or whatever left until the G8 starts. Shut the fuck up on this issue,” she says. “If you push it, there’ll be more backlash. This is now a political football. This is not about women’s health in this country.”

She went on to say, “Canada is still a country with free and accessible abortion. Leave it there. Don’t make this an election issue.



  1. To Mrs or Miss Ruth (I refuse to use the term Mz) I say this:
    “Too late. For me this already is an election issue!”
    I will be making sure to let all of the candidates in my Riding know that where they stand on the abortion issue WILL have a huge effect on my decision of who I shall be voting for in the next election.

  2. The left are very experienced in pushing their agenda. The number one tenet is to slide their issues in under the door of social justice and never, ever let it come to a vote, because their positions consistently have only minority support.
