Legalize Free-Standing Abortion Clinics


This 1983 pamphlet by Concerned Citizens for Choice on Abortion (CCCA) in Vancouver discusses the limitations to abortion access in Canada and calls for support for free-standing abortion clinics to make abortions more accessible for women in Canada. It also discusses legal challenges to the abortion law, both by anti-abortionists like the Borowski case as well as by pro-choice groups like the Canadian Abortion Rights Action League (CARAL). The pamphlet urges support for a national Day of Action for Freedom of Choice on Abortion on October 1st, 1983, and discusses building a defense campaign to prevent a victory for Borowski, to support the countersuit launched by Norma Scarborough and CARAL, and to acquit the medical staff of free-standing abortion clinics.
