New Brunswick is a province that is stuck in the Dark Ages when it comes to access to abortions. An abortion must be be deemed “medically neccesary” before it can be performed.
And… that Beelzebub is alive and active in Fredericton.
As for the first new piece of knowledge…
I learned this upon hearing a CBC piece about the Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton performing the clinic’s final abortions before it closes at the end of this month.
The July 31 closure was announced in April by the clinic, which said it can’t afford to continue performing abortions without provincial funding.
Yet, it appears that good has prevailed over the forces of evil in this Maritime city… Which brings me to the second thing I added to my mental library:
Some New Brunswickers, such as Kelly Seale, want less access to abortions, not more.
“Soon as I walk by there, I feel a very strong feeling of the devil. Yeah,” said Seale, who works at an anti-abortion centre next door to the clinic.
Yeah, the devil.
Gotta love knowledge.
