NDP Renews its call on Pallister Government to make Abortion Pill Available for all Women Provincewide at no Charge

The Manitoba NDP is calling on the Pallister government to follow the example of four other provinces and make the abortion pill available at no cost to women in this province, MLA Nahanni Fontaine said today.

“Alberta is the latest province to acknowledge the huge impact this medicine has on women, especially low-income women and those living in remote regions of the province,” Fontaine said. “It is too expensive and too difficult to obtain for many women unless the government ensures it is affordable and accessible.”
