One down, three to go: New Brunswick’s private abortion facility closes down 

Last week, Clinic 554, New Brunswick’s only privately-owned abortion facility, shut down. Dr. Adrian Edgar, the facility’s director, stated that its closure was due to Premier Blaine Higgs’s refusal to fund abortions outside of public hospitals. New Brunswick has had a policy in place since 1985, prohibiting funding for abortions in “private hospital facilities.”

Women who sought services at Clinic 554 were charged $700 to $850 for surgical abortions. For those unable to afford the costs, doctors would perform abortions pro bono. And providing surgical abortions for free was one of the reasons the facility got into financial trouble. 

Despite Clinic 554’s closure, surgical abortions continue to be performed in the province’s three public hospitals – one in Moncton and two in Bathurst. 

During a press conference, Edgar lamented:

2024 brings the sad end to New Brunswickers’ access to this level of skilled and tenderhearted state-of-the-art care.” 

To hear a man describe his practice of dismemberment as “tenderhearted state-of-the-art care” serves as a reminder of the deceitfulness of human hearts when not transformed by the grace of God (Jeremiah 17:9). We can be grateful then that such a man has been put out of business.

Upcoming documentary asks, how can we end abortion in Canada?

Two Canadian filmmakers want to know: how can Canada get a win for the unborn like the US experienced in 2022? And Josie Luetke and Ruth Robert are making a documentary to figure it out. They've titled it Roe Canada: The True North in a Post-Roe World, a reference to the US Supreme Court's 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion across the country 50 years ago. The reason we are now in a "Post-Roe" era is because of the stunning Dobbs decision last year, in which the Supreme Court overthrew Roe and declared that the US Constitution does not protect a right to abortion. When their ruling was issued, pro-lifers on both sides of the border could hardly believe it was real. We'd almost forgotten that with God nothing is impossible. Then, in the immediate aftermath of Dobbs, individual states like Idaho, Texas, and South Dakota started offering protections for the unborn right from conception. Now these two filmmakers want to know, how can it happen here? The documentary will feature the Babylon Bee's Seth Dillon, former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson, Reformed Perspective contributor Jonathon Van Maren, activist Stephanie Gray Connors, and many others. Together they are trying to craft a roadmap for the end of abortion in Canada. Luetke and Robert plan to finish Roe Canada by the fall but already have a trailer available, which you can check out below. And if you want to help fund the film, visit to find out how. ...
