Medical Abortion - Dr. Richard Wedge

Dr Richard Wedge 3.jpgWe heard from an Island woman who recently received an abortion here on Prince Edward Island. That was quite surprising, since it's always been understood that PEI is the only place where woman must travel out of province to obtain an abortion - either at the Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton - or at the QE 2 in Halifax. Justine - not her real name - told us that she had a "medical" abortion - NOT the surgical one performed on the mainland.  But, an abortion none-the less. Health PEI's acting CEO, Dr Richard Wedge explains what exactly a medical abortion is and how many are carried out here on Prince Edward Island.
