dc.description.abstractFamily planning and abortion services are provided in Canada under the auspices of three levels of legislative decision makers. This in turn impacts direct service providers and the women who require their services. These policies and the theories that support them are examined for their underlying belief systems. The voices of women who require abortion services are heard in illustrating the impact of policy on individual lives. Using a variety of sources, it is concluded that the patriarchal and liberal democratic ideologies of policy makers at all levels impede access to abortion services as one method of birth limitation. The document concludes with a discussion of the possible impact of restricted abortion services on a broader variety of social services in Canada.en
