Cardinal Collins responds to Federal Government announcement to fund abortion in the developing world
Cardinal Thomas Collins, the archbishop of Toronto, expressed “deep concern and disappointment” and called it “arrogant for powerful, wealthy nations to dictate what priorities developing countries should embrace.”
Cardenal Collins was responding to a March 8 announcement that the government would “invest” $650 million over three years to provide abortion and other services in the developing world.
“Canada is blessed with prosperity and a wealth of resources. Surely we can do better than imposing a distorted vision of the empowerment of women on the people of countries that deserve our support to respond effectively to the challenge of their most pressing needs.”pm-letter-from-cardinal-collins-10-march-2017
