So much for Conservative

Here we see a fine example of how Harper has abandoned his own party. He, is a member of the Conservative party, whose actual platform is pro-family, and truly conservative (High Tory). Well, Harper is not pro-family, nor are the better half of the party's Members of Parliament. Today I have this little jewel for you. - After a leaked report Thursday morning indicated that Canada was about to refund the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Canadian government has confirmed that they awarded a grant late Thursday to the abortion organization, the world’s largest abortion provider.

Late yesterday, International Planned Parenthood Federation was informed that its application for funding has been approved under the Maternal, Newborns and Child Health commitment,”[imagine, under the Maternal, Newborns and Child Health commitment. Isn't this was IPPG is against?] Justin Broekema, press secretary for the Minister of International Cooperation Bev Oda, told LifeSiteNews Friday.

The statement confirms a CBC report from Thursday morning, which revealed that IPPF will receive $6 million over the next three years towards work related to sex education and contraception in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Sudan, and Tanzania. [what a malicious intent!]
IPPF had not received funding from Canada since the end of 2009 after a petition campaign by Saskatchewan MP Brad Trost.

Trost told LifeSiteNews Friday that he stands by his previous statements on the issue and will be releasing a more detailed statement sometime next week.  “My views, my position, my stance has not wavered one inch,” he said.
During the election season in April, Trost publicly announced that Planned Parenthood was “defunded,” and said it was an “absolute disgrace” that Planned Parenthood would get even “one penny of Canadian taxpayers dollars.” [how very true!]
International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda responded by saying that IPPF would receive funding if the application met their criteria under the government’s G8 maternal and child health initiative.  

“If Planned Parenthood submits an application that falls within the government’s parameters for the G8 Muskoka Initiative, there will be funding,” she said in a statement.
