TORONTO, July 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Campaign Life Coalition is pleased with the announced resignation of Bev
Oda, Minister of International Cooperation. In 2010, Oda spoke against
the stated decision of her leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, when
he said that Canada would not pay for abortions in developing
countries. She even pushed her agenda to get funding for International
Planned Parenthood Federation (the largest promoter of abortion in the
world) after the fact in 2011.
"She should have been asked to resign at that time," said Jim Hughes,
National President of Campaign Life Coalition (CLC). "Other ministers
were removed for far less arrogance and disobedience. In addition to
this, her scandalous misuse of taxpayers' money shows very clearly that
this Minister should have been removed years ago," added Hughes.
"The Prime Minister claims to not have a hidden agenda on abortion but
when it comes to pro-abortion ministers and their agendas he looks the
other way, " said Mary Ellen Douglas, National Organizer for CLC. "Oda
has been notorious in her pro-abortion position."
Campaign Life Coalition is asking supporters to write to the Prime
Minister to urge him to appoint ministers who have a true concern for
maternal and infant health both in the developing world and in Canada.
