"It is about payment, not whether you can have an abortion. It's about who pays when you do," she said.In fact, the province's funding restrictions have been watered down to such extent that as much as 40% of all abortions now pass as "medically necessary" and therefore - they are paid for by the province. That however is still not enough for the radical pro-aborts like Morgentaler & Co. They want this wholesale slaughter of innocent unborn babies to be 100% taxpayer-funded.
The Morgentaler clinic in Fredericton has been open since 1994, but women getting abortions there must pay for it themselves.
The province will only pay for abortions that are approved in writing by two doctors and are done at an approved hospital.

The provincial government is appealing the court ruling which allows Morgentaler to represent women seeking public funding for abortions on demand. Just as the province's lawyer has stated, the conflict of interest is obvious: Morgentaler is the owner of the abortuary in Fredericton. (The only private abortion facility in New Brunswick.) If the province is forced to subsidize abortions on demand - he'll be the one getting all the cash. (Unless of course New Brunswick lawmakers show real leadership and use the non-withstanding clause.)
