Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister wantsAmerican women can access abortion.
“In Canada, we support unequivocally women’s right to choose. It is a fundamental tenet of freedom,” Trudeau said. “[It] is a fundamental tenet of our society. We stand up for women’s rights.”
“As we see in the United States attempts to roll back rights that women have fought for for generations, the idea that there are young girls growing up in the United States who will have less rights over their own bodies than their mothers did is exactly what Canadians, Americans, and people all around the world are so concerned about,”He concluded.

In Canada, we will do that by ensuring access to abortion for every Canadian who wants it and we will make sure we continue to fight for better health and reproductive rights all around the world. It used to mean being there to fight for health and reproductive rights in the global south. We’ll help out in the United States if we need to, as well,”Trudeau spoke to the media at United Nations on Wednesday.
“In Canada, it is medical professionals who make determinations around what is best for mothers, particularly in late terms,”He said.
