PM David Cameron appeared at the UK Family Planning Summit showing wide support for the global contraception program set to secure commitments from governments in the amount of $4 billion annually.
In a question and answer period following Cameron’s address the first question came from a woman asking the Prime Minister how to get the Holy See to butt-out of women’s reproductive rights. Cameron responded that the evidence is so strong that we need to continue to give woman the power to choose for their own families. He said people need to continue to make the arguments with what works around the world and nothing can stand up to that argument.
The questioner was obviously upset with the successful elimination of reproductive rights language from the outcome document produced at the UN’s Rio +20 conference on sustainable development last month largely due to the leadership of the Holy See. Pro-abortion feminist groups have been seething at the defeat.
