Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is no stranger to promoting abortion and forcing Canadians to fund abortions. Throughout his administration, he’s forced citizens in Canada to fund abortions with their tax dollars — making the government financially responsible for killing babies.
Last year, Trudeau promised to dedicate an additional $300 million tax dollars to promote abortions in the next four years. And he gave $8 million taxpayer dollars to the world’s biggest abortion business.
Trudeau pledged $50 million in March to help fight the coronavirus and now he’s added another $109.5 million to the pool of funds to combat the pandemic. However, as the pro-life group LiveAction noticed, some of the funding is earmarked for killing babies in abortions when all of it should be going to treat patients and support medical professionals helping them.
In a press release, the Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of International Development, announced details of the funding, noting that women and children are likely to have the most significant impacts from the pandemic in developing countries. “The COVID-19 virus knows no borders,” Gould said in the release. “This has been a wake-up call for the world to stand in solidarity and work together. If there was ever a time for countries and governments to support one another and invest in health globally, it is right now.”
All of this sounds good on the surface. But buried within the release is a paragraph explaining what the funding will be allocated towards — and buried at the bottom of the paragraph is an admission that some of the money will be funding abortions.
“Canada’s investment also aims to ensure that its international partners can maintain their services for vulnerable populations where possible, including support for sexual and reproductive health and rights,” it says, continuing, “Canada’s investment in these programs is in line with its feminist international assistance approach, since this global crisis has the potential to exacerbate inequalities and reverse development gains. This is especially true for the women and children who are already among the world’s poorest and most vulnerable citizens and who may now be expected to take on additional caregiving responsibilities in their families and communities.”
Across the country and around the world, non-essential medical procedures and treatments like cancer treatments, stents to prevent clogged arteries, dental work and joint replacements are being postponed because of state orders like the one in Oklahoma, the AP reports. These are important health care procedures; they save lives and relieve pain, but they are being delayed so that hospitals have more beds, equipment and staff to treat people suffering from the virus.
But the abortion industry thinks it is special and so do its benefactors like Trudeau. It wants its work killing unborn babies elevated above real health care.
Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America emphasized that abortions are not “essential” or “urgent,” and abortion facilities that continue to operate during the pandemic are being “medically irresponsible.” Common abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth.
