Late term abortions are happening in Canada because we have no legal restrictions on the procedure. We don’t know how frequently they occur because we don’t have access to statistics. They are happening for apparently any reason at all.
Talk show host Isabelle Maréchal could not believe her ears.
“I was 26 weeks,” said Karel.
The host was incredulous. “Oh wow, and they aborted you anyway?” she asked.
Karel: At the CLSC on Rue Sanguinet. They handle pregnancies of more than 24 weeks.
Host: Did you have a problem? Was it a [high-risk] pregnancy that endangered your life?
Karel: No, I had no problems.
