Quebec Health Minister Wants to Limit Number of Abortions Performed

Summary of this article in Le Devoir:

The government wants to impose a quota of 504 abortions per doctor per year.

The number of doctors who do abortions is small. ( But, would that mean other doctors would be forced to provide abortions?)

The government wants to eliminate abortion as a medical priority.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Let's see more details before we get jubilant.

UPDATE: Please refer to the update. The new measure does not appear to limit abortions as much as first thought.
