Here are quotes from Trifon Haitas on various life and family issues:
After sustained attacks for his pro-life convictions by the media and his own party leader, Bob Rae, Trifon seemed to back-peddle a bit, making some unfortunate statements about respecting that the Liberal Party is pro-choice: "I respect that but I also respect democracy and everybody has their choice to choose what they want to do with their body" [CBC.ca, 'Liberals select ad exec for Toronto-Danforth riding', Feb. 9, 2012]
Defended his pro-life convictions when attacked by the pro-abortion consensus media: "Definitely, I am pro-life. I believe in the sanctity of life and I'm right by their side when it comes to that issue... I, as an individual, have to stay true to my faith ... I grew up in the orthodox Christian faith and there's no way I would turn my back to the beliefs I was brought up with... It's an issue that's close to my heart because I have personal experience of that issue... I'm alive today because both my parents are pro-life. My grandparents didn't want me to be born... I lost a child to abortion. I had no choice in the matter and I feel ashamed that that happened. I've learned from it."
