An Interim investigation has found that over the past half decade, the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health has had its federal government grants cut by more than 99 per cent.
The federation, formerly the Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada and still the Canadian member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, has charitable status, according to the Canada Revenue Agency. The CFSH says on its website that it “promote(s) sexual and reproductive health and rights in Canada and abroad.” It also admits being a “pro-choice organization.” Its member affiliates, which operate in all 10 provinces, provide sex information, contraception and abortion referrals; according to REAL Women of Canada, it is the leading abortion referral service in Canada.
I don’t think pro-choice (or pro-abortion) organizations should receive government funding. I also don’t believe pro-life (or anti-abortion) organizations should receive government funding. If I had my druthers, nobody would receive government funding – we’d all finance our causes ourselves, like the big boys and girls we say we are.
