Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

The government of Canada has assured that American women who cannot terminate a pregnancy in the US will be able to have an abortion in the country. The decision comes at a time when a possible annulment of the 1973 decision, which authorized the board in the USA, is being debated.

Canada’s Minister of Families, Karina Gould, revealed the country’s position, which aims to help all women in need.

“Yeah, I don’t see why not. If they come here and need access, it’s a service we would give them,” Karina Gould replied during an interview with Canadian public television CBC, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also defended women’s “right to choose”.

US newspaper Politico reported on Monday, citing undisclosed documents, that the US Supreme Court is preparing to overturn the landmark 1973 decision that recognized the right to abortion.

The daily said it had obtained a draft decision written by conservative judge Samuel Alito and dated 10 February, which is still being negotiated until publication, scheduled for before 30 June.
