OTTAWA - Canadians don't want to revisit the age-old abortion debate, Canada's minister for the status of women said Monday as activists on both sides marked 25 years since the Supreme Court's landmark decision on the issue.

Rona Ambrose was responding to a question from the NDP's Niki Ashton, the party's status of women critic, when she borrowed a line from outgoing U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
