Another Canadian province just made it easier for women to abort their unborn babies.
Nova Scotia will begin forcing taxpayers to fund abortion drugs so women can receive them for free through their health plans, according to Canadian Press.
Beginning in November, women with a valid health card will be able to obtain the abortion drugs for free at their local pharmacy with a prescription, Global News Canada reports.
“We’re supporting more choice for women when it comes to their reproductive health,” said Kelly Regan, minister responsible for the status of women, in a news release. “This will ensure all Nova Scotia women have access to this option.”
The announcement Friday by the Nova Scotia government comes not long after several other provinces also said they would offer the abortion drugs for free. New Brunswick, Alberta, Quebec and Ontario government officials approved the deadly abortion drugs to be offered for free through their taxpayer-funded health care programs.
Over the summer, abortion activists were pressuring Nova Scotia leaders to follow in the other provinces’ steps. They complained that women have to wait too long to have their unborn babies aborted.
The Nova Scotia government estimates spending up to $200,000 taxpayer dollars on the abortion drugs each year, according to the report. The province Health Authority also is setting up a phone line for women to call about getting the abortion drugs.
The pressure to provide taxpayer-funded abortions is an example of just how radical abortion activists’ agenda is. Canada has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world, allowing abortions for any reason up to birth, and many are taxpayer-funded already. Parental consent for minors, waiting periods, informed consent and other basic, common sense regulations are non-existent. But abortion activists will not tolerate anything less than full support of abortion on demand up to birth, paid for by taxpayers.
About 100,000 unborn babies are aborted in Canada every year, according to the Campaign Life Coalition.
Unlike in the United States, the abortion drugs mifegymiso only became available on the market this year in Canada. Mifegymiso is a two-drug abortion method known in the U.S. as mifepristone (RU-486) and misoprostol. They are responsible for killing millions of unborn babies in the United States and at least 14 women.
In 2012, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration report indicated that 14 women in the United States alone died from using mifepristone and 2,207 women were injured by it.
The dangerousabortion drug has claimed the lives of 2 million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. In addition to the unborn children, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily.

The Canadian governments’ decision likely will anger more than just pro-life advocates. Polls consistently show that most people do not want their tax dollars being used to pay for abortions. A 2015 Marist poll found that more than two-thirds of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, including a majority of women and people who identify as pro-choice. And a 2016 poll by Harvard University found just 36 percent of American voters support taxpayer funding for abortions.
