NDP Calling On Province To Obey Supreme Court Ruling On Abortion

Provincial NDP leader Dominic Cardy says we don't need an independent review to determine the accessibility of abortion services in the province. 

Cardy tells CHSJ News what we have to do is follow the law as laid out by the Supreme Court. He say the 1988 ruling guarantees publicly funded abortion services to every woman in the country.

The NDP is calling for the requirement that two doctors give their okay for medical reasons before an abortion can be performed in New Brunswick to be rescinded.
