September 28, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Shortly after forming government, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals announced that the Office of Religious Freedom, set up by the Harper Government to defend religious liberty around the world, would be closed down. It was an unnecessary project, they contended—and their contempt for freedom of conscience over the next several years would illustrate precisely why they felt it so unnecessary.
But the Liberals did find it necessary invent a different ambassadorship—and one that very much sounds like the “Ambassador of International Abortions.” From CTV News:
Canada will create a new ambassador position dedicated to women, peace and security, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Saturday.
Freeland made the announcement at a meeting of female foreign affairs ministers in Montreal that she co-hosted with Federica Mogherini, the high representative for the European Union.
Freeland did not offer many details but said the new ambassador would help champion feminist-based aid programs and advocate for more female participation in peacekeeping and conflict resolution.
“International and domestic civil society committed to feminism has been telling us that Canada needs to be even more ambitious, and one way to do that is to have a high-level champion for these issues,” she said during her closing remarks.
“Feminist-based aid programs,” in case you were wondering, is generally Liberal-speak for “funding abortions around the world”—and pushing for the legalization of abortion in countries that still protect pre-born human rights. To cite one example, Justin Trudeau pushed Leo Varadkar on Ireland’s pro-life 8th Amendment prior to the referendum that brought abortion to the Emerald Isle—and enthusiastically congratulated him on the results.
Freeland has stated explicitly in the past that the promotion of abortion is a fundamental part of the Trudeau government’s foreign policy, even asserting that this “value” was one of the reasons that the Liberals were pushing so hard to gain a seat on the United Nations’ Security Council. And when the United States reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which ensures that no foreign aid money will go towards funding abortions, the Trudeau government donated $20 million dollars of Canadian taxpayers’ hard-earned money to a “global abortion fund” to help make up any shortfall.
It now appears that not only is Canada going to be known for having abortion as one of the “core values” of our foreign policy and being a major funder of feticide for Third World babies, but we are also going to have a special ambassador with the specific task of pushing abortion globally, just in case Chrystia Freeland gets too busy botching the NAFTA negotiations in Washington, D.C. As Nigerian pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha stated on Parliament Hill, women in developing countries are notasking for abortion—they are asking for education and access to real healthcare. But as always, Justin thinks he knows best.
It is sickening to consider that the physical destruction of tiny human beings developing in the womb has become such a core part of Canada’s international identity under this government. It is apparently not enough that Canada must stand as a global disgrace as the only democracy with no restrictions on abortion whatsoever. No, Canada’s treasury must also be pillaged for cash to be sent overseas to fund abortions—perhaps even in countries where abortion is illegal. When pressed on this point by MP Garnett Genuis, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland smugly refused to answer.
