Disappointed with the new NB Liberal government’s lack of action on abortion access? Us too! It has been 45 days (and counting!) since cabinet was formed. We’re going to let Premier Brian Gallant (who is also the Minister responsible for women’s equality) and Health Minister Victor Boudreau know we expect them to act swiftly, as promised.

As predicted by activists and healthcare providers, clinics in Montreal and Maine have seen a significant increase in patients travelling from New Brunswick after the closure of the Morgentaler clinic. It is unacceptable that an essential, safe, life-saving medical procedure is so difficult to acquire in one’s home province. And that goes double for Prince Edward Island.
The course of action is obvious: repeal any and all legislation that prevents a person from receiving a self-referred, government funded abortion at the hospital or clinic of their choosing.
We demand repeal. We demand change. We demand reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy.
