When Trump signed an executive order taking the United States back to a long standing policy of not funding abortions in other countries using federal tax dollars and American foreign aid money, that was too much for Canada’s left.
Demands have been made that Canada step in and fund abortions where the US will not.
The NDP is pushing the Liberals on that in Question Period.
The Liberals talk about abortion a lot; They promised to push abortion in their 2015 election platform.
One of the real problems with making abortion a key part of Canada’s foreign aid portfolio is that many of the countries we give aid to don’t allow abortion.
I thought Liberals didn’t like that.
And yet, Canada is set to join with the Netherlands in putting together a $600 million a year fund for abortion.
I doubt pro-choice Liberal voters that like the general idea of funding foreign abortions ever thought we would be abortion exporters on that scale.
But there it is:
Canada’s new policy, abortion on demand, worldwide, with your tax dollars.
