What our Conservative government would do here on abortion..

(..if they could get away with it):

International Development Minister Christian Paradis says the government will not fund overseas projects that allow war rape victims and child brides to obtain an abortion…Paradis says the government’s policy would follow the same logic as that behind Canada’s $3-billion G8 funding commitment for maternal and child health — no money should go towards abortion services. At the time, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said none of the those dollars would go toward abortion services because there were enough other worthy initiatives to support.

They can’t get away with it, however, as they know the Supreme Court would probably strike it down in an instant, and they don’t want to give their opponents fodder that they’re veering socially conservative hard right to the mainstream voters out there.

So, what do they do to placate their hard-right social conservative base? Make sure they’re figuratively screwing women and girls elsewhere. In this act, they’re no different from the hard-right Republicans who regularly advocate the same thing domestically.

    I’d love to see them start a fundraising campaign — we know they don’t have the balls to openly campaign an election on it (or changing the retirement age, or raising taxes, or taxing ipods etc) and see how it flies when it becomes public. What’s disappointing is how the mainstream media continues to act quelle surprise when the secrets and scum behind harper — which also resonates from him — like porter becomes public. We laugh at how ignorant Americans appear to be, but are we much different?
