The 88-page platform document was released Monday. Under a heading titled “help for the world’s poor” the Liberals promise to “cover the full range of reproductive health services” — which necessarily includes abortion — as part of Canada’s foreign aid policy to developing countries.
“Closing existing gaps in reproductive rights and health care can and will save lives,” the policy document states.
The announcement comes on the heels of [Liberal leader Justin] Trudeau attacking Prime Minister Harper at a leaders debate last week for allowing women to die from “unsafe abortion” due to the Conservative’s decision to defund abortion in 2010 as part of its Muskoka Maternal, Newborn and Child Health commitment overseas.
During the September 28 debate, Trudeau touted abortion as a mechanism for removing families from poverty, criticizing Harper for “not doing everything we should be doing to help mothers and the most vulnerable throughout the world to remove people from poverty.”
