New Brunswick’s Morgentaler Clinic will close in July. I really, really hope the government doesn’t bail them out. New Brunswick is Canada’s only province that doesn’t fund abortions with tax dollars.
A clinic closing means there wasn’t enough demand to keep it open. Not enough demand means women chose something else. And this is the quintessential conundrum for those who support access to abortion. Will they admit that it is a beautiful thing when women choose something other than abortion? Will they say it is a better choice? Not all choices are created equal.
