On the Elections from United Mothers Inc

I) REAL Women: Key Pamphlet Comparing Conservative, NDP & Liberal Party Platforms

“You will note that we have not included the abortion issue in this pamphlet… Since none of the three major parties has seen fit to stand up for life, no comparison can be made on this issue.”

According to the REAL Women pamphlet, which two parties do you think support the defense of artistic merit for child pornography and the decriminalization of prostitution? (The Liberals and NDP) Which two parties call for the elimination of the "artistic merit" defense for child pornography? (The Conservatives [and CHP]) Which party supports the decriminalization of marijuana? (NDP)REAL Women has put together an informative pamphlet entitled “Strengthening Our Nation” which sets out the positions of the three major parties on the following current issues:
