Foreign Minister Timo Soini faces a vote of no-confidence in parliament after four opposition parties came together to propose the motion. Their move follows a string of anti-abortion statements Soini has made on his blog and his participation in an anti-abortion demonstration in Canada while on an official visit.
SDP parliamentary group leader Antti Lindtman said that a majority of MPs are opposed to Soini’s actions and statements.
