Not So Common Law

Online ** CALL members only!** 

We are going to explore the historical and social background of some of the intriguing, interesting and important legal cases which have had a lasting impact on our society and affect our lives today. Each month we will have a presentation about some of these famous and fascinating cases, plus the opportunity to discuss legal current affairs. Legal issues and law cases will be based on current events and participants’ interests.

Our upcoming topic is:


Comparing Canada and the United States

Canada has no law restricting abortion.

Abortion in Canada is legal at all stages of pregnancy, regardless of the reason, and is publicly funded as a medical procedure under the Canada Health Act and provincial health care systems. Having said that, access to abortion varies by region and non-legal barriers continue to exist.

Nonetheless Canada remains the only western, industrialized nation with no legal restrictions on abortion.

How did this come about? How does this compare to the contentious situation which has arisen in the USA where it appears that the US Supreme Court is poised to overturn the famous American case of Roe v. Wade?
