The Dupes of Hazard Reruns - International Planned Parenthood’s Weasel Words, Dishonesty, Deceit and Death

ARPA Note: This press release has already been picked up by the Globe and Mail. Note, hyperlinks have been removed.

For Immediate Release, September 30, 2011: OTTAWA – Member of Parliament Maurice Vellacott commented today on IPPF’s deceitful language on abortion to con the Canadian government for taxpayer dollars under the Muskoka Maternal/Child Health initiative.

IPPF had revised and resubmitted its funding proposal to CIDA after the 2011 election.“ The IPPF is trying to dupe us into believing that because Canadian taxpayer dollars are going to countries where abortion is supposedly illegal, the money won’t be spent on abortions,” says Vellacott.

“But we know in Bangladesh, for example, where Canada is funding, this nefarious organization will do early abortion which they euphemistically call ‘menstrual regulation’ by vacuum suction. If a woman hasn’t had her period in 8 weeks, they will do a ‘menstrual regulation’ – that’s an early abortion by another name.

“In this way, IPPF will be using Canadian taxpayer dollars for funding abortions directly or, to use other deceptive language, they will be ‘establishing non-pregnancy in the first trimester.’ 

“So funding IPPF in these 5 countries contradicts a criterion for Prime Minister’s Stephen Harper’s noble initiative to save the lives of women and children in developing countries.

“Even in those countries where abortion is technically illegal, it’s naïve to think that Canadian tax dollars are not being used to promote abortion. One of IPPF’s main publicly stated goals is to aggressively dismantle abortion laws in each country around the globe and have abortion recognized as a universal human right.  “Sexual Rights: An IPPF Declaration”  

“Under the guise of ‘education’ Canadian taxpayer dollars will be used to advance IPPF’s unfounded claims that abortion is necessary to prevent maternal deaths, when in fact abortion does great harm to women. 

“In addition, 6 million Canadian taxpayer dollars to IPPF frees up money from other sources to fund abortions directly.”

Vellacott continued: “Earlier this week we heard that a US Congressional Committee is investigating the national chapter of IPPF in America, for financial irregularities and concerns about the cover-up of sex trafficking of women.  PPFA has also covered up cases of incest and the rape of minors. There are also reports of their racial/ethnic targeting, for example, against Blacks and Hispanics. 

“IPPF has come a long way in sanitizing its language to disguise its true agenda since the days of its founder, Margaret Sanger, the leading exponent of the modern eugenics movement. Sanger was much more direct about her motives. Sanger freely criticized charitable programs that helped poor pregnant women and their children whom she referred to as ‘dead weight of human waste.’ “The Pivot of Civilization,” by Margaret Sanger, Chapter 5: “The Cruelty of Charity” at.... And her ‘plan for peace’ included ‘a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation’ for those she deemed ‘unfit.’“A Plan for Peace,” by Margaret Sanger, Birth Control Review (April 1932, pp. 107-108) at...

“But Planned Parenthood’s coded language today doesn’t fool me,” Vellacott concluded. “This controversy over funding will in the end have a positive effect. It will have exposed the lies and destructiveness of IPPF’s agenda, and it exposes what this abortion giant is surreptitiously trying to achieve worldwide.


"It’s still not too late to stop this 6 million dollar IPPF misappropriation of Canadian taxpayer funds, because IPPF does not meet the criteria of our commendable maternal and child health care initiative. IPPF will be doing abortions by another name."
