Town & Country – April 10, 2018 NDP proposes no-go zone outside abortion clinics

Athabasca-Sturgeon-Redwater MLA Colin Piquette said that regardless of one’s position on abortion, it is a legal right that government is obligated to protect. 

“As the government, we are obligated if people are accessing a legitimate health service that they’re not being intimidated, shamed or bullied for doing so,” he said. 

“I just think it is unfortunate that we need to put this type of legislation into plat, and I have respect for diverse opinions on this issue,” Piquette added.
