Mr. Harper stands strong for children in the womb


The following article is from Life Site news, http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2010/feb/10021905.html and concerns Prime Minister Harper standing strong against opposition leader Michael Ignattieff concerning international abortion funding. Mr. Harper has decided that as Canada is hostng the G-8 summmit this year that he will set the agenda for helping women and children in developing countries. Mr. Ignattieff stated that any health care initiatives should include access to reproductive "health" measures. Mr. Harper has rejected his oppostion's call for abortion funding abroad and instead will focus on clean water, innoculations and better nutrition as well as training of health care workers. This article also pointed out that since Mr. Harper has become Prime Minister of Canada that funding for the Canadian branch of planned parenthood, the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health has fallen from nearly 1.3 million dollars a year to just over 9 thousand dollars a year. Mr. Harper is a far from perfect national leader but he is the best we have had in a long time. Perhaps this is why God has blessed Canada so much lately.

Greetings from Rhode island,
It is kind of ironic that in 2006 a political party led by a Protestant won an election, for the first time since 1965. Every other election in between has been won by a party led by a Catholic.

Good point about "Catholic" politicians vs.protestant ones. I don't care what the religious affiliation of a politician is, (Islam being the exception) it is good to have a PM who doesn't slamt the door in the face of the pro-life movement.
