OTTAWA, Dec 2 ( – Last week Health Minister Allan Rock launched the Canadian Health Network (CHN), an Internet-based, health information service for Canadians developed by Health Canada and more than 400 “respected health organizations.”  Listed among the 400 “respected health organizations” were several pro-abortion and homosexualist groups, however, no pro-life or pro-family groups were identified. Considering the fact that the government is touting the network as “a single door to a world of information that will help Canadians make choices about health and well-being” and is funding the project with $32 million over three years, the biased selection of partners is of great concern. 

The web site is replete with the slogan “health information you can trust”, and claims to be inclusive in terms of the values expressed, yet it fails to offer the pro-life and pro-family perspective on life and family concerns. “Associate Partner” links on the site include the Canadian Abortion Rights Action League, Childbirth by Choice Trust, Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada, Lesbian Gay Bi Youthline, Lesbian Mothers Support Society, and Parents,  Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.
