Abstract

Recent headlines have highlighted that abortion access in Nova Scotia might be the worst in the country. It's been almost 30 years since the Supreme Court of Canada held that barriers to abortion access may violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and yet in Nova Scotia it's clear that significant barriers remain. In our view, the current situation may unjustifiably violate women's constitutional rights.
