Despite public funding of abortion services that take place off Prince Edward Island, the National Abortion Federation is pushing to have the procedure take place on the Island.
Dawn Fowler, Canadian director of the National Abortion Federation, says her organization has presented a business case to the Robert Ghiz government with the aim to make abortion services available to women in P.E.I.
According to this article in the Guardian, Fowler has three abortionists willing to cross over to the Island to perform abortions in the hospital’s ambulatory care rooms.
Not surprisingly, the government is resisting this move. But Fowler seems determined.
The federation is planning a news conference in Charlottetown next Wednesday that will include one of the physicians willing to offer abortion services in P.E.I.
