The answer would be $147 million since 1983. That's about $5 million a year.
That's your tax dollars and mine. Given to the world's number one abortion provider.
"Could you please provide us with more information on the contraceptives that your Tanzanian member uses as part of the project we fund?The response (in part) from IPPF was that:
1. IPPF has not purchased Jadelle and distributed it to TanzaniaInteresting. But what is even more interesting is that on another page located withing the semi-annual report, I discovered that Jadelle was purchased and used in Mali.
2. UMATI has not purchased Jadelle with Canadian funds
3. Canadian funds have not been used to ensure service providers and insert and remove Jadelle [sic] (see page 178 below)
"We're introducing an open government initiative to help create the transparent government you deserve. A government that works for you and with you...to do this we are introducing three initiatives, open data, open information and open dialogue. Open data is the foundation of open government....we want to unlock the data...to make it easy for outside parties to access".And this:
"open information...this addresses government processes and making them more transparent...we want to give you a clear picture...of what things cost...."Lastly:
"everything builds up to open dialogue...we want you to be able to communicate with us and tell us how you think we're doing and how things can be improved".Kathleen really did post this video. I. Am. No. Kidding.
"B.C.’s health minister has intervened in a dispute over increased fees charged to abortion clinics and instructed provincial health authorities to pay for extra costs so that services for women aren’t reduced.
Terry Lake’s office confirmed Friday he has instructed the Vancouver Coastal and Vancouver Island health authorities to pay for the increased licensing fees being charged to three abortion clinics by the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons...
The two Vancouver-area clinics and one Victoria clinic had warned they might have to reduce service hours to make up the costs, which amounted to almost $9,000 extra per clinic."All abortions performed in Canada are already completely funded by the taxpayer. Now the BC health minister is promising to pay for these additional fees for these abortion clinics.
"Obama Administration can force Hobby Lobby and other pro-life-run companies, colleges and organizations to violate their consciences and religious beliefs and pay for birth control or abortion-causing drugs for their employees."We obviously hope the pro-life groups win this case.
"What she knew is that she wasn't ashamed of her choices, and wouldn't be made to feel that way. So she needed to think quickly, in order to maintain the integrity of her convictions, but not rub people the wrong way with her truth. So she came up with a version of the truth that also touched on a deeper injustice in Claire's life."And from Amanda Marcotte writing in Slate:
"Granted, Claire's story isn't exactly true. Yes, she's had an abortion (three, it turns out), and yes, she was raped by this man. It's just that none of her pregnancies were caused by this rape, and one of Claire's abortions happened because she and her husband chose together not to have a baby [Claire is 16 weeks pregnant at the time and they were campaigning so must get rid of baby]. Claire is a character who is frequently portrayed as a scheming, immoral liar, but for once, her truth-fudging comes across as entirely sympathetic. The implication is that the American public will forgive aborting a rape-caused pregnancy but would never forgive someone who rebels against the expectation that she must have children with her husband. To protect herself from the intrusive condemnation of people she's never met, she pretty much has to lie."How do you like that? A "version of the truth" and "she pretty much has to lie"? Because for the pro-abortions, the truth is whatever you say it is.
"Under the conditions articulated in Evangelium Vitae, n. 73, it is morally licit to work for and to vote for legislation, including gestational legislation, which limits the harmful effects of an unjust legal regime that permits abortion.
At the same time, it is also morally licit to withhold support for gestational legislation — and other incrementalist legislative strategies intended to limit access to abortion — if, after prudent reflection, one is convinced that it is an unwise legislative strategy.
The conditions articulated in Evangelium Vitae, n. 73 can be applied to the situation in Canada today with regard to gestational legislation. The Catholic faithful are free to support such legislation in good conscience. This does not mean, however, that Catholics are compelled to support gestational legislation.
We pray that the prolife movement may not be divided in spirit by disagreements regarding the practical wisdom of gestational legislation. We implore all within the movement to refrain from questioning the good will or motives of those who have taken a different stand from their own on this issue."Respected spiritual leaders have told us that a gestational approach is not an inherently immoral strategy, but a matter of prudential judgement. AFLO/CLC continues to contradict this. Saying that a gestational approach is immoral and intrinsically evil, judges these spiritual leaders as acting immorally. It also judges my actions as being immoral. That is what it means to support an immoral act: one is acting immorally. This is troubling.
"Some supporters of gestational legislation have compared the present abortion situation in Canada with the scenario of two drowning children. “Aren’t you going to save one?” they ask. This is so misleading."I don't know what is misleading about this at all. I actually think the analogy doesn't go far enough. Let me expand upon it.
"Setting a high standard for accountability and transparency is part of the government's plan to make it more open and accountable to the people of Ontario."Since I am one of those people residing in Ontario to whom your government is supposedly open and accountable to, frankly, I am having a lot of difficulty in comprehending how this can in fact be true. Especially since I have now waited almost five months for an answer from you regarding a very simple question indeed.
"The provocative notion of genetically modified babies met the very real world of federal regulation Tuesday, as a government advisory committee began debating a new technique that combines DNA from three people to create embryos free of certain inherited diseases."
"asked that a special committee of the House of Commons be appointed and directed to review the declaration in Subsection 223(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada which states that a child becomes a human being only at the moment of complete birth. 91 members showed support for the bill asking that the special committee be appointed. Unfortunately, 203 members voted against the appointment of the special committee."Rod Bruinooge's Bill C-510 had 97% support
"Discussing the possibility of defunding abortion, Klein said in a press conference that “The chances, I believe, are slim and none.” The Edmonton Sun reported that when pressed on whether the issue was open to debate, Klein said, “No, it’s not. Not at all. No. Full stop.” In the legislature, Klein went further, saying “My position is that this is a matter between a woman, her doctor and her God.”Now it's almost all politicians who play this game. Apparently there's not a backbone in the lot of them.
