There is no hospital or clinic in Prince Edward Island that will abort an unborn child. Now, a new group called Abortion Access Now P.E.I. has released a statement saying they hope to change that.
"P.E.I. women are the only women in Canada without access to safe, legal abortion in their home province."
Today, they announced that they will file a legal challenge against the P.E.I. government. Currently, women travel to New Brunswick or Nova Scotia to end the lives of their unborn infants.

News sources report that the government said it would review the file and "respond accordingly in due course."
