26 Canadian Organizations Denied Public Funding for Being Pro-Life

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
In a move that is apparently the complete opposite of the recent Title X rule in the United States, which reduced government funding for organizations that practiced abortions, the Canadian government has now denied federal funding to 26 organizations due to their pro-life stance on abortion issues. This rule applies to organizations that utilized the Canada Summer Jobs program, an employment and skills initiative.

Pro-life organizations are required to declare that their organization does not actively work to limit access to abortion (which is available during all 9 months of pregnancy for any reason in Canada) or forego funding that was previously used to fund summer jobs. This rule even applies to pro-life pregnancy centers, severely limiting mothers' options for life-affirming pregnancy care. Click here for more.
