PEI Abortion Rights Network The PEI Abortion Rights Network (ARN) is made up of individuals and organizations working together to ensure that all women living in Prince Edward Island have access to publicly-funded, accessible, safe abortion services in their own province.
In addition, it is ARN’s objective to ensure that all women in Prince Edward Island have accurate, timely and helpful information about abortion and abortion services. We focus our efforts on breaking down the barriers that Island women face in getting access to this necessary medical procedure.
In cooperation with other organizations working on behalf of Island women, ARN organizes events and campaigns to explore the social, political and economic aspects of abortion rights.
In all of its activities, ARN is guided by principles of Freedom of Choice, Equality and Inclusion.
Twenty-five years ago, on January 28, 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada overturned our country’s criminal abortion law in an historic decision that gave women the right to abortion on request without restrictions. It was a day of jubilant celebration for Dr. Henry Morgentaler and the thousands of pro-choice activists who had worked hard for decades to win abortion rights.
