People, wake up, over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does is abortions!
And PP in Canada doesn’t have to separate public funding so it can all go to abortion. Although, if you want the government to pay for an abortion it might be easier to go to a hospital or clinic where tax payers fund 100%.
Canada used to have private for-profit abortion clinics but a federal ruling required the government to pay for treatment.
The Muskoka Initiative is a program by the Government of Canada (and the other G-8 countries) to improve maternal and child health worldwide. The Canadian International Development Agency set out a request for grant proposals that was due in January, and International Planned Parenthood (“IPP”) was one of the organizations that requested funding. The announcement of which proposals have been accepted hasn’t been released yet, but Trost claimed that, thanks to the efforts of groups like the Sask. Pro-Life Association, the Government has decided to reject their proposal, which means that IPP won’t get any money under the Muskoka Initiative.
The Conservative spokesman said that there hasn’t been a decision yet on whether to accept IPP’s request for funding or not, and that if the IPP request for funding fits under the requirements it will be accepted and if it doesn’t, it won’t, just like any other organization requesting funding.
Our local Planned Parenthood is right across the street from the library. I heard a pro-life protester tell someone going in “Those people are abortionists, not doctors. All they do is abortions.” At that point I interjected “That is a lie. They do a lot of health care for women that couldn’t otherwise afford it.”
Protester: Well, 90% of what they do is abortions.
Me: That is not “all.” ALL is 100%. Learn some basic math and stop telling lies.
There was a rally for my local PP last week. When the people supporting them were talking, the anti-abortion protestors were very rudely screaming over them. When the antis got their say, the pro-choice crew ere politely silent.
s Andy Rooney put it: I don’t kno if I’m pro-choice or pro-life. But I know I like pro-choice people better than pro-life people.
