About those abortion clinics in Quebec

It has been reported that some abortion clinics have threatened to close over the restrictions imposed by Bill 34. Some have said that the clinic l'Alternative has closed down.

I do not believe this is the case.

I do not believe any of them are threatening to close down.

Think about it: Morgentaler and the feminists spent decades fighting for abortion, and they're going to give up over some lousy government regulations?

Morgentaler goes to jail to obtain the right to do abortions, but they're just going to roll over and shut down their clinics?

They're not going to find the money to conform to those regulations?

Come on. Quebec is supposed to be a hotbed of pro-abortion sentiment. You mean they can't raise the money or find the necessary space?

I don't buy it.

I sense that the media is making a bigger deal than it really is.
