THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW Canada) urges the Government of Canada and relevant ministries to: 1. Urge the provinces and territories to initiate a program of education and training for registered health care professionals in areas that do not provide abortion services within underserviced rural and urban, remote and Indigenous areas that would enable patients seeking abortion services to consult on abortion information and options, and be prescribed a medical abortion option without the necessity of meeting a doctor in person as currently required, if available within the necessary time frame; and 2. Allow trained nurse-practitioners, physician assistants and midwives to prescribe a medical abortion option in the consultation process and increase access in underserviced rural and urban, remote and Indigenous areas; and FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Canada urges the Government of Canada and relevant ministries to: 1. Complete the development of the Health Canada portal to include information on abortion options and related reproductive health information so that all women searching for information and facing reproductive health decisions have a safe and reliable tool to assist their connection to reliable information and educated and informed medical staff; and 2. Utilize new and ongoing technologies and infrastructure upgrades to increase access through the internet and use of mobile devices.
