image for Americans Can Get Abortions In Canada If Roe Is Overturned, Canada Official Says

A Canadian official said Wednesday that Americans will be able to obtain abortions in Canada should the Supreme Court overturn the landmark abortion rights decision, Roe v. Wade.

“I don’t see why we would not,” Karina Gould, the minister of families, children and social development, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

“If they, people, come here and need access, certainly, you know, that’s a service that would be provided.”.

Abortion is legal in Canada at any point in pregnancy.

While it will be legal for American women to obtain abortions in Canada, there is still the issue of accessibility.

Unlike conservative lawmakers in the U.S., Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau supports a woman's right to a safe and legal abortion.

We’ll never back down from protecting and promoting women’s rights in Canada and around the world,” he said. »
