Don't you mean legal Chris?

No!, Stephen, I meant

"When did abortion become illegal?"

The National Abortion Federation provides the following among other information.

Making Abortion Illegal

In the mid-to-late 1800s states began passing laws that made abortion illegal. The motivations for anti-abortion laws varied from state to state. One of the reasons included fears that the population would be dominated by the children of newly arriving immigrants, whose birth rates were higher than those of “native” Anglo-Saxon women.

I worked with an old Cowboy who asked about Infanticide. For some reason he talked about it with me quite a bit.

Amazing how equality is more equal for some, huh?

Comment by Stephen on December 17, 2017 at 14:08

Suzanna Its good that you keep up on all these issues. 

Comment by Stephen on December 17, 2017 at 9:42

Suzanna, I've always had the impression that because the Isle of Man isn't under the direct control of the British Parliament the leaders of the Island have been far more conservative than the rest of the UK, on all things, not just the Abortion debate. 

Comment by Stephen on December 16, 2017 at 16:15

Suzanna, have you taken part in the campaign?

I can remember that I and my Union took part in the protests marches in the early days of the call for a Woman's right to choose.

Mrs.B. it looks like Canada has some of the most enlightened laws on the subject. 

Comment by Mrs.B on December 16, 2017 at 15:33

I haven't paid much attention to the laws here in Canada, as I am long past child bearing years, but I found this at Wikipedia.....

Abortion in Canada

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abortion in Canada is legal at all stages of pregnancy,[1] and is governed by the Canada Health Act.[2] While some non-legal obstacles exist, Canada is one of only a few nations with no legal restrictions on abortion.[3][4] Regulations and accessibility vary between provinces.[5]

Prior to 1969, all abortion was illegal in Canada. The Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968–69 introduced by Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government legalized abortion, as long as a committee of doctors signed off that it was necessary for the physical or mental well-being of the mother. In 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in R. v. Morgentaler that the existing laws were unconstitutional, and struck down the 1969 law. The then-governing Progressive Conservatives attempted, but failed, to pass a new abortion law, and since then Canada has had no criminal laws governing the subject, and abortion is a decision made by a woman with her doctor. Without legal delays, most abortions are done at an early stage.[6]

In 2005, 97,254 abortions were reported in Canada; it is estimated that this number "represents approximately 90% of all abortions performed in Canada involving Canadian residents".[7] This number has been decreasing since at least 1998.[7]

Quite Mrs B far too long.

It's not quite equal to the English because there you can have an abortion up to 24 weeks pretty much on demand as far as I'm aware, although the law doesn't say that, in practice, it seems to be the case.

Over here it will allow for abortions up to 14 weeks unless there is risk to the life of mother or foetus. It's a good start. 

They are also looking into decriminalizing it over here.
