OTTAWA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to direct $650 million in federal funds to ensuring women are allowed to kill their unwanted children, along with a variety of other “women’s” issues.
Trudeau, who is hailed by many in the pro-abortion crowd as a “feminist hero“, announced the three-year plan March 8 in honor of International Women’s Day. According to Canada’s The Globe and Mail, the funds will finance “a range of global programs, including contraception, reproductive health, legal abortion, sexuality education and advocacy work.”
At a recent news conference, Trudeau bemoaned the difficulty mothers face who wish to kill their offspring without risk of harm to themselves, saying: “For far too many women and girls, unsafe abortions and lack of choices in reproductive health mean that they either are at risk and at risk of death, or else simply cannot contribute and cannot achieve their potential.” He did not explain why he holds such a low view of women that he believes they cannot achieve their full potential unless they are allowed to murder their own children in the womb.
In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Canadian International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau said that the plan would attempt to “reduce the number of unsafe abortions, through education, contraception, family planning.” The Globe and Mail stated that 22 million unsafe abortions take place annually and that these abortions are the leading cause of death for women in developing countries. No mention was made of the staggering number of children who die daily in abortion clinics worldwide.
Of course, Trudeau isn’t the first to show his solidarity with some (though certainly not all) women by committing to help ensure their right to hire assassins to get rid of any children they do not want to care for. After the presidential election last November, several celebrities took to social media to fund raise for Planned Parenthood, boasting of making donations in the name of Vice President Mike Pence.
This is one of the many reasons abolitionists do not focus on fighting abortion through attempts to defund Planned Parenthood. They believe that as long as the culture demands the right to kill the innocent on demand and without apology, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers will have no trouble staying afloat with or without the yearly $500 million in federal funding Planned Parenthood enjoys.
This is also why abolitionists believe the Gospel is the answer to sin, and the only answer to abortion. In a society in which celebrities and world leaders are proud to announce their support for the shedding of innocent blood, nothing but changed hearts through the power of the Gospel has any hope of stopping the holocaust. Abolitionists maintain that all efforts to push back the darkness that leave out the Gospel will utterly fail. Likewise they believe any and all efforts to cripple abortion through indirect or regulatory means are both unrighteous and ineffective.
The fact that a nation’s leader is commended as a hero for vowing to make it easier to crush children to death should stir up outrage in the righteous and cause them to demand that such crimes against God, against the innocent, and against humanity be tolerated no longer.
