Harper's Conservatives say "not funding abortion"

Oh dear,

I have always said that divisive issues suck, but it seems that the Conservatives want to take this wedge issue and press it down on Canadians. According to the Star, Conservative MP Jim Abbott said

"Canada's contribution to maternal and child health may include family planning. However, Canada's contribution will not include funding abortion."

This is obviously a tough issue to work with. This is not something that should be put into the political arena, but here the Conservatives have decided to take a step forward and push it in. I believe that our taxes should go towards these things. If this is going to prevent unsafe methods such as knitting needles and clothes hangers then it is definitely worth it. The state should not be pressuring women away from having this safe method of abortion
