OTTAWA, Nov 27 (LSN)  A press release from the Canadian international Development Agency (CIDA)  Wednesday revealed that Canada has pledged $500,000 and another $80,000 to assist the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in promoting “human rights” in Colombia and other developing nations. The announcement was made by Foreign Affairs Minister Lloyd Axworthy and Minister for International Cooperation Dianne Marleau during the visit of Mary Robinson, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.  Robinson has often admitted that her (and the UN’s) definition of “human rights” includes the “right”  to abortion on demand and the acceptance of homosexuality. Furthermore, Colombia is one of the thirteen developing nations targeted for population control by the notorious NSSM 200 document. For these reasons,  pro-life leaders are concerned that the Canadian monies pledged to the programs will be used to support abortion on demand, the promotion of homosexuality and other population control projects in Colombia and the other countries.  To see the CIDA press release go to:   For evidence of Robinson’s anti-life, anti-family stance see the following LSN articles:
