Abortion relegated to history books?
I think I’ll sue the P.E.I. government because my dad had to travel to Halifax, his bones full of holes, near death and in extreme pain - there were no specialists in P.E.I. to help him. Or I’ll sue because I had to rush over to Halifax to get my growing baby looked at by a specialist who ended up giving me the same info I received here (signs of Down Syndrome and heart issue).
In Halifax, I was offered a chance to discontinue my pregnancy, so that was handy at least! Did I mention that 3 1/2 months later my perfectly healthy baby was born? Or I should sue because I had to travel off-Island twice in the last three years for urgent ultrasounds that would have taken too long to have on P.E.I.
Or perhaps I should sue because two of my children have severe jaw issues that can only be fixed in Moncton. It will cost at least $12,000 for each of them. Many things can go wrong along the process that would result in more costs. These two kids will have to suffer with locked jaws, etc. because after spending close to $1,000, we’re not sure where we would come up with an extra $23,000.
But I probably won’t sue. We live in P.E.I. and we only have so much healthcare funding. Sometimes we have to travel for healthcare, or pay for certain types of healthcare. Sometimes you do the best you can with what you’re given.
One day, abortion will only be found in history books. Future generations will read in disbelief that politicians, friends, neighbors and good people accepted that ending the life of innocent babies was acceptable, just like we now read about slavery, segregation and the Holocaust.
