Fredericton, Canada, Oct 11, 2019 / 13:16 pm
Clinic 554, the only private abortion clinic in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, is closing because of financial instability, its director announced Thursday.
The Fredericton clinic is a family practice that, according to its website, believes "patients have a right to self-affirming services. We are committed to sex-positive, gender-celebratory care, anti-racist and feminist practices, and full-scope reproductive care, including abortions."
The clinic notes that "the breadth of services offered by our family practice includes all scopes of medicine, from pediatrics to geriatrics with a focus on reproductive, trans*, LGBT/Queer, and HIV care."
Clinic 554's medical director is Dr. Adrian Edgar.
