School of Leadership Studies Assist. Prof. Wanda Krause joined Calvin To for CHEK News’ Sunday Spotlight to discuss recent abortion bans in the United States and what they might mean for reproductive rights in Canada.

Here is an excerpt:

'What is quite interesting here [in Canada] is that it’s not just older, white men as in the States who are at the forefront of such legislation, it’s people within inside civil society organizations that include largely youth. These are students who are often going to universities and are in their early twenties.

'I don’t think this means [reproductive] rights will be curtailed in Canada—I don’t see that happening at all. What I do see is further discussion and hopefully not a further polarization.'

The interview begins at the 26:30 time mark in the CHEK Sunday newscast.
