Participants needed for research on abortion debate

Thursday, January 17 2013


I am looking for volunteers who have knowledge of abortion politics in the Maritime Provinces from the period 1969 to 1996.

As a participant in this study, you have the option to: answer an online survey; and/or share your opinions and experiences through an interview. Some questions are of a personal nature and participants may skip them. For example, there are questions at the end of the survey that ask participants if they terminated a pregnancy between 1969 and 1996 and if they travelled far for the abortion.  These questions are meant to determine the availability of abortion services during this period.

Your participation in the survey would involve one or two sessions. The survey would take approximately 30 minutes. The interview would involve one session, which would last approximately 60 minutes.

For more information about this study, or to volunteer for this study, please contact: Katrina Ackerman, Department of History at
