The 30-year Fight for Abortion on Prince Edward Island

Book - 2018
Rate this:
Between 1993 and 2011, prochoice groups lay dormant and defeated after slowly losing whatever access used to exist on PEI. After Morgentaler lost his lawsuit against the island, there was virtually no more public discourse on the subject. That changed in 2011, when a group of five women in their twenties (known collectively as the PEI Reproductive Rights Organization, or PRRO) challenged the government and started making noise. Since then, after receiving a lot of bad press and some public pressure, the government has shifted slightly to the left. Women can be referred to hospitals offisland via hotline instead of doctors. The province will pay for the abortion, as long as it's not on PEI soil. But still, at every opportunity, politicians refuse to even entertain the idea of abortions on PEI. When a Nova Scotia doctor made a proposal to come to the province part-time, two years ago, health care bureaucrats stomped on the plan immediately even though it would've saved the province money.
