Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. Jeremiah 13:23
The Liberal Party of Canada has been an active agent of evil at least as far back as those dark days in April 1968 when Pierre Trudeau won the leadership of the party, became Prime Minister, and proceeded to destroy the country. Mr. Trudeau, as Justice Minister and then as Prime Minister, was responsible for legalizing sodomy and abortion. The latest Liberal leader, pseudo-Canadian Harvard University professor Michael Ignatieff, is following in Mr. Trudeau's footsteps:
Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff says Prime Minister Stephen Harper must include abortion in his G8 initiative to mobilize international support for maternal and child health care in the world's poorest countries.
Ignatieff told reporters Tuesday that there is no direct evidence that Harper's initiative would specifically exclude abortion. "We just want to lay down a marker that we hope they don't go there," he said.
His concerns are based on reports that the Conservatives have cut almost all funds to the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health -- which is Canada's member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation -- and on anti-abortion views voiced in recent years by several Tory MPs...
...Ignatieff raised the issue earlier in the day, telling a Liberal-organized forum on international aid that Harper's initiative is "better late than never," and that Liberals support the plan so long as it includes abortion and birth control.
Go here for Campaign Life Coalition's response to Mr. Ignatieff's statement.
Ezra Levant asks the right questions:
P.S. Surely it's just a coincidence that Ignatieff's first major policy statement about abortion has to do with Haiti and other Third World minorities, right? I mean, it's not like Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist woman who called blacks "reckless breeders" and had a special "Negro Project" right? I mean, Planned Parenthood would never argue that eugenics was the best solution of racial, political and social problems would they?
