Abortion Services Now Available in the Province of Prince Edward Island
2017-01-22 After decades of advocacy, the Abortion Rights Network is happy to announce that PEI women are finally able to access abortion services in their own province. Surgical abortions are available up to 12 weeks, 6 days of gestation, as part of the new Women's Wellness Program at Prince County Hospital. The Program also provides a variety of other sexual and reproductive health services. More information
The Canada Health Act states that everyone in Canada should have access to necessary health services, including abortion. Abortion is a safe and legal service. The Province of Prince Edward Island will pay for abortions done at a hospital but not at a private clinic.
