Prime Minister Increasing Funding To Fight Disease
On Tuesday Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will address the United Nations to lobby for a substantial increase in funding for the fight against AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis in the developing world. These are three of the most substantial viral killers on Earth and dollar for dollar fighting those diseases can save thousands, if not millions more lives than building an abortion clinic on every street corner. I wonder if the Liberals in Question Period will decry the PM for fighting AIDS, Malaria, and TB in Africa when what those Africans really need are more abortions? I am proud to have Stephen Harper represent my country on the world stage, and I believe that meeting with the most powerful people in the world serves a useful purpose beyond what Liberals call a shameless photo-op.
