A new survey from Ipsos Canada reveals that “less than 2 in 10 women” have knowledge of the options available to manage their abortion. The study further reveals that “62% are concerned about their reproductive rights in Canada after the repeal of Roe v. Wade in the US”.
Our CEO, Dr. Diane Francoeur shared her thoughts on the result of this survey:
"With medication and surgical options for the termination of pregnancy available to women in Canada, and the on-going attention on abortion access in the US, it is surprising that awareness and understanding around reproductive health continues to remain low as the survey suggests. It is essential that women know their options and can make an informed choice with fact based and reliable support mechanisms in place to serve their needs. Further education and awareness are needed to support knowledge and understanding."
