Abortion Debate in NB

It's been 25 years since the Supreme Court of Canada decriminalized abortion. It's been over 10 years since New Brunswick's abortion laws were challenged in court, but there has yet to be a ruling. This province has one of the country's most restrictive laws on abortion. St. Thomas University journalism student Cherise Letson takes a look at the continuing debate.
