July 3, 2023| In an interview with CBC Pearl Eliadis reflects on provincial government's plan to protect reproductive heath. Some health and legal experts have been questioning a provincial government plan to protect reproductive rights, after the minister responsible for women's health proposed to enshrine a women's right to abortion. 

"All we need to do is to have a government come in, use the not withstanding clause to say that that protection doesn't exist" she says. She also adds that this is accepted as a women's right in this province as a healthcare service and she added that it should remain as a basic healthcare right and the proposed action can grab the attention of extremists and serve for an opposite purpose.
