Oct 3, 2022 - Abortion Access in Canada

When: October 3rd, 7pm

Although abortions are available in urban centres and paid for by the health care system, there is a dire lack of access in many parts of the country - particularly for undocumented people, those from communities of colour, and those outside of urban areas.
