WINNIPEG – A demonstration in support of women’s access to free, legal and safe abortions will be held in Winnipeg Thursday.
The event is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the Crisis Pregnancy Centre on 650 Broadway. Thursday marks the 40th anniversary of the decriminalization of abortion in Canada and has been chosen as a National Day of Action to support reproductive choice.
The event is organized by M.s. Citizenship Feminist Collective, which maintain that crisis pregnancy centres often misinform women about abortion. The group says it is still difficult for women outside of Winnipeg to access abortions, since only one clinic and two out of 52 hospitals in the province perform the procedure.
