Canadian PM: no abortion funding in foreign aid for maternal care
Catholic World News - June 06, 2014
Despite pressure from abortion advocates, the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is not including abortion in its international aid funding for maternal care, according to the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute.
“What we have been trying to do since 2010 is build broad public and international consensus for saving the lives of mothers and babies,” said Harper. “You cannot do that if you introduce that other issue.”
“The fact of the matter is it’s not only divisive in our country and in other donor countries, it’s extremely divisive in recipient countries where it’s often illegal,” he added. “There are obviously some organizations that advance that issue but the government of Canada does not advance that issue.”

The problem here for the libs is that they are still calling abortion an essential option for "maternal" health. I expect that very soon they'll be championing abortion as an essential option for "female" health, and that will make it all better.
