Major under-reporting of abortion numbers in 2006 stats

Statscan came out with its yearly abortion figures. There's a three year gap between the year under study, and the time they are published.

There were over 91 000 abortions in Canada, according to Statscan, but that does not include abortions from clinics in BC, Manitoba, and New Brunswick.

This is getting ridiculous.

We should have accurate abortion numbers in this country. What is so hard about reporting NUMBERS to whoever it is they report to?

Why isn't this legally mandated?

Do people care about reducing abortion numbers or not?


I did some number crunching. Assuming there was no major dip or rise in abortion numbers, I guess that we are about 15 000 abortions short in the grand figure.
