Defunding

We all thought the abortion issue was over. Now the issue came back. We are hearing that the Conservative government has cut funding for organizations that went against the Conservative position on maternal health. An organization's funding should not be decreased just because of their beliefs. This does not sound like the Canada I know. The Canada I know is the one who does not discriminate on organization for saying their opinion. I ask the government to apologize to each organization personally and restore all funding.

The following organizations have lost there funding:

  • Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW)
  • Conseil d'intervention pour l'accès des femmes au travail  (CIAFT)
  • New Brunswick Pay Equity Coalition
  • Réseau des Tables régionales de groupes de femmes du Québec
  • Alberta Network of Immigrant Women
  • Centre de documentation sur l'éducation des adultes et la condition feminine
  • Association féminine d'éducation et d'action sociale (AFEAS)
  • Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses (OAITH)
  • Womenspace Resource Centre (Lethbridge, AB)
  • Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA)
  • Feminists for Just and Equitable Public Policy (FemJEPP) in Nova Scotia

  1. Many groups lost funding. Not just those. Groups of all kinds, Chantelle Heibert had an article on it on thursday. When a defecit is being fought funding will be cut. To say any groups funding is guarenteed in a time of debt fighting is insane and if the Libs are guaranteeing all groups no cuts then lets put that out there and see if canadians agree.

  2. But the Conservatives are boasting that they are giving even more funding to women's groups so deficit fighting doesn't come into the equation.I would really like to know which groups ARE getting funding and what services they are providing for women.

  3. Where has common sense gone?

    My Mother, who is a feminist liberal, and I love her,
    I said to her one day, Mom women are smart right?
    Of coarse they are – I said, I agree.
    Mom. Women are responsible right?
    Well Yes Larry, what are you saying?
    Well, if Women are smart and responsible, and it is their body's and THEIR CHOICE then why are they getting pregnant?
    What, she asked.
    I said Mom, there are 21 different contraceptives just for women, 7 different types alone that are inserted under the skin that prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years.
    So If they are smart and responsible – then why are we all arguing about Abortion?
    No one wants to kill or have a child that is not loved.
    Abortion is preventable.
    And believe it or not, I'm pro-choice. Pro choice for those who've been raped. For Those who've been victims of incest.
    And if the mothers life is at risk. - BUT THAT'S HER CHOICE
    Abortion should not be used as a form of birth control.
    Take responsibility for yourself and your life. That way you don't have to end another and pass on some Common Sense
