By the 1960's, it was estimated that anywhere from 35,000 to 120,000 abortions were being performed every year.

Today, Canada's legal abortion rate is about 100,000 a year.

The law allowed abortion to preserve the woman's "health", a vague term that some TACs interpreted conservatively, others liberally, with the result that some TACs approved very few abortions, while others simply rubber-stamped them all.

Fourth, TACs were overwhelmingly male, meaning that men were dictating the fate of women they had never even met.

It would still be a crime, of course; but the woman could apply for special permission from a therapeutic abortion committee of three doctors at a hospital, who would judge whether her life or health was in danger.

Fifth, the anti-abortion movement started taking over hospital boards, and once in control, they would either disband the TAC, or staff it with anti-choice doctors.

So in practice, access to abortion was very unfair, just like it was before the law.

The Canadian Parliament banned it completely in 1869 under threat of life imprisonment.

Statistics on illegal abortion are always hard to come by, but we do know that between 19, 4,000 to 6,000 Canadian women died as a result of bungled, illegal abortions.

Canada is one of the very few countries in the world that has NO criminal law restricting abortion at all. I'd like to share with you Canada's unique history of abortion, how it came to be that we have no law, and what abortion services in Canada are like today.
