Dear Canadian Catholics,
Following from PM Harper's call to improve Maternal Health around the world, the Liberal Opposition leader Michael Ignatieff is pressing the issue of abortion. Ignatieff is pressing Mr. Harper to promote abortion as "Maternal Health" (a contradiction in terms).
It is also important to note that some Liberal MPs are solidly Pro-Life and that Mr. Ignatieff does not have full consent of his MPs on this.
It is also note worthy here that PM Harper's core intent was to provide better Health to young children and their Mothers because of high infant mortality rates in the developing world. Mr. Ignatieff is showing himself to be needlessly politicizing this issue by pressing for abortion in this matter.
Please stay tuned in to this story if it develops more.
