Ottawa, Canada (LifeNews.com) -- A leaked draft of the final paper for the coming G8 summit suggests Canada will not suggest to other nations that promoting abortion is the best way to help reduce maternal mortality.

The draft, obtained by The Canadian Press, shows the world's most powerful countries are prepared to throw money at "all factors" affecting the health of women and children in poor countries, but it doesn't specifically mention abortion.

The Harper government has been under fire for insisting it will not fund abortion as part of its G8 maternal health plan, now known as the "Muskoka Initiative."

"Action is required on all factors that affect the health of women and children," the document says. "This includes addressing gender inequality, ensuring women's and children's rights and improving education for women and girls."

Instead of singling out abortion for funding, the document refers only to the need to strengthen "voluntary family planning," likely giving the harper government what it needs to sidestep the abortion debate.

Promoting abortion would not help reduce maternal mortality.

A new study out in April by the leading British medical journal Lancet shows maternal mortality rates have been significantly overestimated by United Nations (UN) agencies. The Lancet reports that maternal deaths worldwide in 2008 totaled 342,900 rather than the 500,000+ used by abortion advocates

Wish I could say the same for the USA under Obama and Hillary.
She has already spoken at UN on behalf of USA in favor of abortion.
Party of Death.

She has already spoken against Harper's health initiative for not including abortion. Something to the effect that without abortion funding, any health initiative would be useless.

Luckily, we Canadians don't like foreign potentates telling us how to run our foreign policy, and she may have inadvertently offended some people who were undecided on the matter.

Mrs Clinton should give her head a shake.To Canadians she is just another meddling foreigner-Secretary of State not withstanding.She had the nerve,the gall to criticise us on our own soil.The last Head of State or minion thereof to do so was Charles Degaulle and he was shown the door immediately and became personae non grata.Same thing should have happened here.God forbid she EVER ascedes to the Presidency.
