British Columbia will begin offering free abortion drugs to women on Jan. 15, providing even more incentives for women to abort their unborn babies.
The province follows New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta, Quebec and Ontario in its decision to offer the deadly drugs for free through the taxpayer-funded health system.
Vice reports women will be able to obtain mifegymiso, a combination of the abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol, for free at pharmacies in British Columbia with a prescription, starting Jan. 15.
The abortion drugs may be used up to 9 weeks of pregnancy to abort an unborn baby, according to the report.
“In April 2017, the common drug review recommended Mifegymiso, also known as RU-486, for public coverage,” the province health ministry said in a statement Tuesday. “Removing the cost barrier helps ensure that individuals can access this safe, legal and available option if they choose.”
Mifegymiso, also known as RU-486, has been partially covered through PharmaCare since July 11, 2017.
However, some users would have had to cover an out-of-pocket cost of about $300 for the drug. …
Access to the drug will still require a person to visit a doctor or nurse practitioner for an ultrasound to ensure they don’t have an ectopic pregnancy where an embryo attaches outside the uterus.
The pressure to provide taxpayer-funded abortions is an example of just how radical abortion activists’ agenda is. Canada already has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world, allowing abortions for any reason up to birth, many already taxpayer-funded. 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 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 dangerous abortion 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 provinces’ decisions 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. A 2016 poll by Harvard University found just 36 percent of American voters support taxpayer funding for abortions.
