Abor­tion pill not nec­es­sary

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I have to com­ment on the ar­ti­cle that ap­peared in, The Guardian, Au­gust 2, 2017, en­ti­tled, “Fund abor­tion drug in P.E.I., say med­i­cal stu­dents.” Why are med­i­cal stu­dents lob­by­ing the P.E.I. gov­ern­ment for the abor­tion drug? We al­ready have med­i­cal abor­tion ser­vices in Sum­mer­side.

Yes, they want bet­ter ser­vices for women’s health and safety but they don’t take into con­sid­er­a­tion the un­born child. It doesn’t mat­ter if this abor­tion drug mif­e­gymiso, also known as RU-486, was ap­proved by Health Canada in July 2015. Do you want tax dollars go­ing to abort a baby? We should be spend­ing tax dollars on other ser­vices like bet­ter health care for all and ed­u­ca­tion of chil­dren.

This is­sue on whether life be­gins at the mo­ment of con­cep­tion or at birth will never be re­solved un­til laws change and rec­og­nize when life be­gins.
