Kudos to Conservative MP Brad Trost (Saskatoon-Humboldt) for promoting a petition urging the federal government to stop funding International Planned Parenthood Federation. LifeSiteNews.com reports:

The goal, says Trost, is to stop the IPPF funding when it comes up for renewal, which he says is supposed to happen around December 31st.

He has circulated a similar petition “on a low-key level” by word-of-mouth since the March for Life in May, but has redrafted it and posted it to his website.  He has already presented these petitions in the House of Commons a few times, but is now stepping up his efforts.

The petition is available through Trost’s website.

Ending funding for a special interest group like IPPF should be an easy decision for an ostensibly conservative government.
