TORONTO, March 31 /CNW/ - In a news conference with G-8 foreign ministers on Tuesday, March 30, 2010, U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton promoted abortion as "maternal health."
"Hillary Clinton is merely trying to force her own pro-abortion agenda onto the world stage as she attempts to influence G-8 leaders and oppose Canada's position," said Jim Hughes, National President of Campaign Life Coalition (CLC).
"To suggest that we offer women in developing countries the death of their child rather than safe health care as Prime Minister Harper has suggested is a morally bankrupt position."
"Jack Layton is quoted in the press as saying that the Harper Conservatives have let ideology get in the way," said Mary Ellen Douglas, National Organizer of CLC. "It is clear by Hillary's remark that it is the pro-abortion ideology which is getting in the way of maternal health."
Campaign Life Coalition asks you to contact the Prime Minister's office and urge him to stay the course and do what is best for maternal health.
