Think of the Orphans!

The good thing about pro-choice arguments is that we can get a good laugh.  Here is an article in the Winnipeg Free Press regarding the G8 initiative by Stephen Harper with my comments:

Women’s and reproductive-rights organizations have written a last-minute letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper urging him to include abortion funding in his G8 maternal- and child-health initiative.”No woman and no child should pay with their lives for the ideologically based decisions of one man named Stephen Harper,” said Katherine McDonald, executive director of Action Canada for Population and Development.

But unborn children should pay with their lives for the ideologically-based decisions of pro-choicers…but I digress.

Vicki Saporta, president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation Canada, told a news conference Tuesday that Harper’s decision to exclude abortion funding from his initiative will create generations of orphans in developing countries.

Of course! We are forgetting about the orphans! It’s good that pro-choicers will make that decision for them that their lives will suck bad enough that they should die before they are born.

The World Health Organization reports nearly 70,000 women die each year from complications from unsafe abortions, while another five million are hospitalized and three million more go untreated.

The Conservative prime minister has said he won’t include abortion or family planning and contraception in the maternal- and child-health initiative he’ll introduce at the G8 summit in Muskoka, Ont., this week, even though abortion has been legal across Canada since 1988.

The letter signed by more than 100 women’s and abortion-rights groups throughout the G8 and other countries commends Harper’s commitment to women’s health, but it says the initiative will fail as it now stands.

Yes, it will fail. Both mother and child will be alive. We can’t have that!

“The scientific evidence is overwhelming,” says the letter. “Access to safe, legal abortion care preserves women’s health and saves women’s lives. Unsafe abortion remains one of the leading causes of maternal mortality in developing countries. …

The evidence is overwhelming…such as????

“We ask that you honour Canada’s long-standing tradition of recognizing women’s reproductive rights and urge you to include access to contraception and abortion care in your initiative to improve maternal health care.”

Canada is 143 years old and abortion has been legal for about the last 40 years. What a long-standing tradition!

An accountability report released last weekend cited improvements to disease prevention and child- and maternal-health care in the Third World as two of the most poorly kept promises among G8 countries.

“The (goals) on child mortality and maternal health are proving the toughest area in which to make progress,” said the report.

What about unborn children mortality? Any progress on that?
