The Morgentaler abortion clinic in Fredericton will close the end of July following a 20-year fight with the New Brunswick government over funding for the procedure.
The only abortion clinic in New Brunswick, Canada has just announced its closing today, which will be in July of this year. As a citizen of New Brunswick, and the city where it is located, I had always felt slightly comforted that if something were to happen and I ended up with an unwanted pregnancy that there was something near by, despite the extremely high cost of the procedure (ranging from $700-$850). But the founder of this clinic, Dr. Henry Morgentaler, had a policy in which no woman was to be turned down and there are recordings of pro-bono operations.
There has been a refusal of funding for the clinic, leaving citizens of New Brunswick, and neighbouring province of PEI without access to safe abortions.
In order to receive an abortion in the province after the clinic shuts down, it must be an absolute medical necessity with referral from two doctors (i.e. Family doctor and Gynecologist).
Today, in the year 2014, a giant step back away from female reproductive rights, and human rights in general, occurred and it is utterly disappointing.
Hey guys, this is a thing going on in my city right now and it’s disgusting. Please sign the petition to help women keep their rights
Some disgusting things going on in my province. Please, support women’s right to safe abortions.
For those in NB, there is also a rally next Thursday in Fredericton https://www.facebook.com/events/1425319387725563/?ref=3&ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

The Vampire Bat is the only species of bat that has retained its ability to maneuver on land, not only can they walk on land but they can also hop and run at surprisingly fast speeds!
desmodus rotundus is objectively adorable
they’re also the only mammal to run with front propulsion! how cool is that. every four-footed mammal that can gallop does so in the same pattern, except these little guys.
Reference for dragon walking.
