The Justin Trudeau Liberals will pour $241.5 million into providing and promoting contraception and abortion in developing nations — particularly in Africa — as part of their commitment to securing global access to “sexual and reproductive health and rights.”
International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau made the announcement on Tuesday during the Family Planning Summit in London, England.
The money is part of the $650 million the Liberals pledged in March to promote global access to “sexual and reproductive health and rights,” as well the $840 million they’ve earmarked “for humanitarian assistance in response to the crises in Iraq and Syria,” according to a Liberal backgrounder.
About 65 percent of the $241.5 million targets Africa.
The backgrounder, entitled “Canada’s leadership on sexual and reproductive health and rights,” details that the Liberals will dole out money over five years to veteran abortion promoters.
These include the United Nations Population Fund, Marie Stopes, International Planned Parenthood Federation, and the World Bank.
