After reading the presentation summaries found in the 46 page online program it is clear that this conference is not a typical academic conference at all: it is, in fact, a gathering of international academic abortion activists committed to further promoting the cultural and political acceptance of abortion. As I read the summaries, the presentations regard abortion exclusively as a woman’s personal right and a reproductive justice issue: the status and rights of unborn children are not mentioned. Nor is space provided for points of view other than that of those promoting and actively working to make abortions more accepted culturally, politically and medically.
To be ‘reductionist’ is to ‘reduce’ a complex issue to a false simplicity or to narrow one’s explanation of the issue to only one or a few of its parts. In light of this, and with all due respect, I’d like to comment on Malcolm Murray’s Letter to the Editor on July 3rd

In response to the latest pro-abortion-petition submitted by Dr Colleen MacQuarrie and friends to Premier Ghiz on May 28th, PEI Right to Life would like to support the voices of the Island majority in saying: “We DO NOT want
It has just come to my attention the pro-abortion petition sent to your office by Dr Colleen MacQuarrie and friends, specifically Vicki Saporta who is ‘the’ American abortion-shaker-and-mover. For those ministers cc’d who have not seen the petition, I include the link here:
NAF abortion provider association wants to bring abortion-on-demand to PEI: “At clinics, women wouldn’t need a referral…” That’s abortion-on-demand provided by American big business and paid for by Canadian Medicare. What a sweet business deal
Charlottetown, PE, Friday, 23 May 2014 – The PEI March for Life 2014 will begin on Sunday, 25th May, at 11:30 am at St Dunstan’s Basilica in procession to Province House.

PEI Right to Life would like to reiterate that there is no abortion law in Canada, and thus no legal obligation at present to provide abortion-on-demand. Provinces remain the determiner of what constitutes medical necessity, and the PEI government is under no obligation to provide non-medically necessary services.

It is usually followed by Misoprostol up to 3 days later, which then causes uterine contractions to expel the child from the womb.
