Racist agenda may underlie push for abortion

Cardinal says aid organizations pushing 'reproductive rights' for women do not pursue their best interests
Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace,
speaks at a news conference Sept. 29 at St. Paul University in Ottawa.
The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about Cardinal Peter Turkson, who says abortion in the third world might be race based:
Programs pushing contraception and abortion on the developing world under the guise of women’s health care and “reproductive rights” may have an underlying racist agenda, Cardinal Peter Turkson said in a Sept. 28 interview. 
“The program being pushed does not reflect the true situation of women in the third world,” the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace said. “It derives from a certain thinking that you deal with poverty by eliminating the poor.”
