Harper aborts maternal healthcare


They did not clarify whether we will pull out of the current aid programs that provide funding for abortion services or explain how they would separate abortion services when providing aid for maternal health.

Does that mean that Canadians will not provide funding for local clinics or new hospitals if those clinics or hospitals also provide abortion services? Or support family planning education, if those courses include information about safe abortion timing or I assume if the medical practitioner presenting the information performs abortions. What about the red cross, they also provide blood collecting services to be used when performing abortions.

I guess that leaves us creating a somewhat evangelical alliance with the faith based groups who focus more on conversion and after life salvation than surviving the harsh realities of day to day life in the poorest countries in the world.

I agree with Bob Rae, for a party that doesn't want to reopen the abortion debate, they have now placed abortion back on the front burner. And unfortunately again placed Canada as the greatest roadblock to reaching any kind of consensus at the forth coming meetings.

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
