ONTARIO, June 12, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership candidate and member of Parliament (M.P.) Derek Sloan said boldly on social media Tuesday that abortion is “not health care” in response to news that the Canadian government will use taxpayer money to fund abortions abroad. “Abortion is not health care. I will end all Canadian funding for abortion in foreign countries and redirect that money to make sure seniors receive proper care here in Canada,” said Sloan on Twitter. Sloan tweeted his message with a link to a Global News report regarding an announcement Tuesday that the Canadian government, under pro-abortion prime minister Justin Trudeau, will fund $8.9 million of taxpayer money to international abortion organizations.
