International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda approved the proposal by the International Planned Parenthood Federation. The IPPF went around the issue of abortion by asking for money for sex education and contraception services. This is contrary to the Federal governments’ commitment at the G8 Summit last year to improve maternal health in developing countries, abortion free! Something that 4MYC (YOU) prayed so hard to ensure, that LIFE was protected! Click here to review results of your prayers.
Please take 1 minute and a few cents to call Bev Oda at 613-992-2792 and leave a message letting her know you object to your money going to fund Planned Parenthood anywhere in the world.
CANADA RENEWED PLANNED PARENTHOOD FUNDING
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED
(These are your tax dollars.)
SHOCKING NEWS: CBC news just released an article that states that Canada will give $6 million dollars to Planned Parenthood International, which will provide sexual and reproductive health services, including abortions and abortion counselling in five developing countries where abortion is illegal – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Sudan and Tanzania. Click here to read the full article.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
We are asking Canadians to take part in the following action points below, and then kindly ask 3 of your friends to do the same! There is potential for over 3,000 voices to be heard on the Hill and an even greater potential for millions of babies’ lives (globally) to be saved. Let’s do it!
