Welcome to the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada

The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada (ARCC) is the only nation-wide political pro-choice group devoted to ensuring abortion rights and access for women. We formed in October 2005 to carry out political and educational work to support reproductive rights and health.

ARCC is Canada’s “voice for choice.” Check out our Vision and Mandate for more about what we stand for and what we do.

Our diverse coalition consists of pro-choice groups and individuals across Canada working to represent all Canadian women.

in Canada

What's New

April 16, 2014 - Cities Rally in Solidarity with New Brunswick Women - National outrage builds as the NB Dept. of Health abandons women and creates health crisis, in response to upcoming closure of NB’s only abortion clinic. Rallies in Fredericton, Toronto, St. John’s, Charlottetown, Montreal! 

April 11, 2014 - Take Action for New Brunswick Women! - Use this page to send letters to government officials, sign a petition, attend an event, and spread the word, regarding the upcoming closure of the Fredericton Morgentaler Clinic, and the urgency of repealing the NB payment regulation that illlegally restricts access.

April 11, 2014 - New Brunswick Gambles with Women’s Lives - The closure of New Brunswick’s only abortion clinic will have devastating and potentially tragic consequences for women in that province, warns ARCC.

April 9, 2014 - Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton to Close - It's a dark day for New Brunswick women.  For over 25 years, the Province has shown callous disregard for women's health and rights.
ch 2014 - The Injustice and Harms of Parental Consent Laws for Abortion - Evidence shows that if a parental consent law for abortion was passed by any province or territory, it would contravene medical policies and ethics around the consent of minors to healthcare, violate their constitutional rights to bodily security and privacy, and increase risks to their health and safety. (ARCC has also sent this letter to all Saskatchewan MLAs.)

January 2013 - The Benefits of Decriminalizing Abortion - Canada is the first country in the world to prove that abortion care
can be ethically and effectively managed as part of standard healthcare practice, without being controlled by any civil or criminal law. Canada’s success is a role model to the world.
