New 'Motherhood' Steve Worries Fetus Fetishists

Now that Stevie the Spiteful's government has succeeded in stripping 99% of federal grants to that notorious supporter of people who both do and do not right now thanks want to be parents, the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health, formerly Planned Parenthood, we learn that there are plans to do the same to International Planned Parenthood Federation.

Back in early November last year, ReformaTory Brad Trost revealed his Christo-Talibanny scheme.
A petition calling for a stop to federal funding of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has been launched by Saskatoon-Humboldt MP Brad Trost.

Trost presented the petition to the House of Commons Monday. IPPF is funded through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and, according to Trost's petition, "promotes the establishment of abortion as an international human right and lobbies aggressively to impose permissive abortion laws on developing nations."

The petition says that the government pledged $18 million to the IPPF over four years and that "the IPPF does not support physician's freedom to practice according to their conscience and/or religious beliefs regarding abortion referral."

According to IPPF's website, the federation promotes sexual and reproductive health rights and provides health services for people in six world regions. Its work is focused in five priority areas: Access to services for marginalized groups, education services for adolescents, advocacy campaigns, HIV-AIDS and abortion services.

Gee, wouldn't the brand-new bestest friend of women, Motherhood Steve, want to support planned parenthood?

Maybe not. It seems Misogynist Steve's morphing into Motherhood Steve isn't going over too well with the Forced Pregnancy Gang.
Abortion Push Feared!

Following Prime Minister Stephen Harper's announcement on Wednesday that Canada will use its influence as president of the G8 this year to promote maternal and child healthcare in the developing world, pro-life leaders are expressing concern that the government has sought the counsel of Action Canada for Population and Development (ACPD), a pro-abortion associate of Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life leaders are calling on Canadians to contact the Prime Minister and International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda, and ask them to ensure that the government does not cave in to pressure to push abortion and population control as part of the initiative.

Delish, isn't it? Not only does Morpho-Man have everybody with more than one functioning neuron rolling around on the floor laughing, this totally bogus and transparent stunt may backfire with the Christers.

Christo-Talibanny, there's another good entry for the DAMMIT JANET! lexicon for rightwing religious zealots.

So, he'd have to come out and confirm my fevered suspicions about abstinence program funding before they stop reaching for the smelling salts?

Niles, I don't think your suspicions are so fevered. If they ever got a majority. . . (shiver)

I'll be watching the fetus fetishist sites. Because whatever response they get from the government, they'll either crow or SHRIEEEEK. And then we'll at least know what the ReformaTories are telling their base base.
