A Fair Comeuppance

"The Lancet" is considered the world's leading English language medical journal.

Here is it's pronouncement on Stephen Harper.

"The Canadian government does not deprive women living in Canada from access to safe abortions. It is therefore hypocritical and unjust that it tries to do so abroad."

The numbers:

70,000 women die from unsafe abortions worldwide every year.

350,000 women die during childbirth each year.

9,000,000 children under the age of 5 die each year.

Mr. Harper has put together a summit focusing on women's health.

He should stick to his agenda and keep his personal backwoodsie philosophies out of the picture.
