C-484: It lives

I just saw it on CPAC, Bill C-484 (aka the "Unborn Victims of Crime" BULLSHIT bill, aka the "Kicking Abortion's Ass" bill that's not about abortion) was just voted straight past the Round File where it belongs and on to a standing committee for whatever they do there, by a margin of 14 votes.

Yeas - 147
Nays - 133

There were (about) 28 Liberals who voted in favour of this piece of misogynist crap, so they made the difference. (Thanks, Steph.)

Ah well, it's probably better optics to let the anti-choicers vote their conscience and give the Senate committee the job of killing this thing.
