Québec Decides Not to Appeal Abortion Ruling

The Government of Québec has decided not to appeal the August ruling of the Québec Superior Court ordering the Government of Québec to pay more than $13 million to women in Québec who had paid to obtain abortion care since May 2, 1999. The Court concluded that the Government of Québec violated its own legislation by only partially paying for abortions when obtained in certain women’s or private clinics, a service covered under Quebec’s Health Insurance Act.
