Our Billboard at the Corner of Arcola and Victoria
An empty classroom. One of the approximately 40 annual classrooms that are empty because of abortion.
According to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, there were 931 abortions in the 2013-2014 fiscal year (April 1 – March 31). This data is tabulated according to how many times doctors in this region billed the government for either a 1st trimester abortions (code 50p) or 2nd trimester abortions (code 250p).
The cost of each of these procedures is $169 for a 50p (1st trimester) and $215 for a 250p (2nd trimester) abortion. These are ONLY the doctor billing costs. Since all abortions in Regina-Qu’Appelle health region are done out of the Regina General Hospital, there are additional uncalculated costs associated with complications, nursing, intake, building maintenance, etc. These costs are difficult to estimate.
