I've been working on an ATIP I did to Global Affairs Canada regarding the $650 million dollars to fund Canada's vision for reproductive rights in Africa, when I came across this nonsensical tweet by Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau.
The Liberals really are scary. Do they really believe this stuff they come up with?
First of all Canada doesn't "firmly believe" this nonsense--Liberals "firmly believe" it. Many Canadians, myself included, do not.
Second, there is no such thing as a fundamental right to choose. This "right" is a made up right.
Third, does anyone believe--besides Liberals--that "economic empowerment" is the same as the mythical pro-abortion construct known as a "fundamental right to choose"? Even if the right did exist, the statement still doesn't make sense.
Here is Minister Bibeau's full quote on the government's website:
“Canada firmly believes that a woman’s fundamental right to economic empowerment cannot be distinguished from her fundamental right to choose. When sexual and reproductive health and rights are respected, other rights become more accessible. With its Feminist International Assistance Policy and partners like UNFPA, Canada is committed to a comprehensive approach to the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls globally.”
- Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La FrancophonieI'll write more later on what I learned from the ATIP.
