Resign from his duties as Minister of Health & Wellness

Prince Edward Island is the only province in Canada that does not provide any abortion services. This is a violation of Section Seven of the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms, and is not in accordance with the Canada Health Act.

Documents obtained by the CBC have shown that Min. Currie halted a plan developed in May, 2014 by Health P.E.I. that would have seen biweekly abortions provided at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown.

Min. Currie has demonstrated that the P.E.I. Government values the votes of anti-choice Islanders more than the health of the many Islanders who find themselves in need of terminating a pregnancy.

There is still time for the P.E.I. Government to do the right thing and allow for local abortion services, but until that time, silence is tacet acceptance of the harm and suffering caused by the archaic non-policy that is the status quo.

This petition calls on Doug Currie to fully disclose his reasoning behind the decision to halt plans for local abortion access on P.E.I.  Should he fail to do so, we ask P.E.I.'s Health Critic James Aylward to call for the resignation of Min. Currie from the position of Minister of Health & Wellness.
