In light of the fact that we have a federal election coming up, I have a question I would like you to answer for me.
Last week we learned that Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is selling aborted baby parts for profit. PPFA is part of International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
As you know, IPPF received $6 million from Canada for the Maternal, Newborn and Child Health initiative.
I understand that if elected you would restore funding for abortion under the Muskoka initiative (or under another similar initiative):
"The NDP would restore funding for abortion and family planning to Canada's keynote development initiative which promotes maternal, newborn and child health."I haven't heard you speak out against Planned Parenthood's recent activities in selling aborted baby parts. Your silence on the subject to date, suggests you support these illegal activities of Planned Parenthood.
Since Canadians have funded IPPF in the past, and in light of these recent allegations of IPPF's activities, would you continue to support funding to IPPF?
