Item #2: Obama Regime's Pro-Abortion Radicalism Threatens Aid to Africa

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at June 28, 2010 4:17 AM

The (conservative, by the way) Canadian government has a plan for reducing infant mortality and maternal mortality in Africa. Based on studies of what works, the Canadian initiative focuses on improving the status and political power of women so that the governments of developing countries are more responsive to the needs of families; in addition to increased support for better hygiene, access to clean water, better nutrition, better education for women, and expanded medical care.

Sounds like a good idea, right? Sounds like an idea any reasonable person who cares about the health of women and children in developing countries would support, right? Well, The Obama Regime opposes the plan because it doesn't do enough to advance abortion as the preferred form of population control.

Hillary Clinton, when asked about Canada's G8 plan to address infant and maternal health in the developing world, said the following: "You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion."

That's right, under the pro-abortion radicalism of the Obama Regime, you aren't allowed to save children unless you promise to butcher children. And U.S. support for the Canadian Plan is being held hostage to pro-abortion special interests. Much in the same way the gulf cleanup was held hostage to union special interests, only with more baby-killing.

In a related story,as shown in this un-embeddable video, a leftist Canadian politician with pictures of mass murderer progressive hero Che Guevara on his office wall begins to talk about abortion. Promptly, an earthquake strikes.

Take. The. Hint.
