The 7.8 Million Dollar Question
Alberta taxpayers currently pay at least $7.8 million every year towards the funding of non-medically necessary abortions (“elective abortions”) in Alberta . All while many genuine health care needs do not get covered by Alberta provincial health insurance.
$7.8 million taxpayer dollars could instead be used to hire 19 doctors , hire 200 nurses , or buy 6 life-saving MRI machines  every year for all Albertans.
It’s one thing for an individual to make a personal choice to end the life of a baby in the womb. Its quite another to expect the rest of us to pay for it. Abortion is too divisive to fund with taxpayer dollars. We should de-fund abortion and fund the life affirming alternatives of crisis pregnancy support, parental support, and adoption.
