The Canadian Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, Karina Gould, declared that the country can provide “interruption services” to US citizens. In Canada, there is no abortion law, and all women would have to do is pay the cost of the procedure.

Also on Wednesday, American newspapers from cities located on the Canadian border, such as Detroit, reminded their readers that the abortion is legal in the neighboring country and that women can go to Canadian clinics.

The minister expressed her fear that the possible repeal of abortion rights in the US could affect Canada. She stated that they will be vigilant so that “something like this doesn’t happen here”, and added that 60% of members of the Conservative Party of Canada, the main opposition group, oppose abortion.

Trudeau added that his government is considering introducing a bill to guarantee the right to abortion in the country.

Although abortion is legal in Canada, as long as that the Supreme Court struck down existing legislation in 768, there is no law that regulates the topic.
