ok this is really important to me and everyone who lives in eastern canada, so if you can donate ANYTHING, please do it.
Basically, there is only one abortion clinic in the maritimes of canada (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island) and our provincial and federal government both refuse to fund it, forcing it to close. Now, women will have to drive at least 8 hours to receive a proper and safe abortion. Abortions are available in hospital, HOWEVER, we currently have the two doctor rule in place, where a woman needs two doctors to say the pregnancy is threatening to her life, or will cause complications in the future, before a pregnancy can be terminated. This rule does not take into consideration: rape, mental health or financial situations.
For those who say “abortion shouldn’t be birth control”, I highly doubt women have 1000$ to throw around on “birth control”.
The clinic provided financial assistance for youth who couldn’t afford the full cost, and without this system, women will be forced to carry a pregnancy to full term just trying to save up the money.
On Friday, July 18th, the clinic is closing unless Fredericton Young a Feminists and Reproductive justice NB reach their goal of 100 000k. A large group of pro choice supporters will be rallying together to march from the clinic to the legislative assembly building, carrying wire clothes hangers. I know that most of you cannot attend in person, but please support our march financially.
I have almost 1000 followers. If all of you give 10 dollars, and reblog this, we could reach the goal by the deadline.
Please, don’t see it as supporting an abortion clinic, but as supporting our right to choose, which will be stripped from us in 3 days without your help.
