 h English (en)Historically, there were significant challenges to abortion in the past. Until 1969, abortion was not generally legal. Following the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968-69, abortion became legal in cases where physicians decided the abortion was necessary for the physical or mental well-being of the woman. However, the Criminal Law Amendment Act also imposed restrictions on abortion access, as it was not generally accessible to all women. In 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the existing abortion laws were illegal, and they were struck down. Since then, there have been no official laws on abortion in Canada, making it available to women without restrictions. Today, one-third of all hospitals in Canada perform abortions.

Après le Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968-69, l'avortement devint légal dans les cas où les médecins décident que l'avortement est nécessaire pour le bien-être physique ou mental de la femme. En 1988, la Cour Suprême du Canada décréta que les lois sur l'avortement existantes étaient illégales, et elles furent invalidées. Depuis, il n'y a pas eu de lois officielles sur l'avortement au Canada, ce qui le rend disponible pour les femmes sans restrictions. Aujourd'hui, 1/3 de tous les hôpitaux au Canada effectuent des avortements.
