KELWONA, BC, Sept 21 (LSN) – A report in the Kelwona Daily Courier last week indicated that the local health board is seeking $400,000 from the provincial government to set up an abortuary in the Kelwona General Hospital. This despite the deplorable conditions of general health care in the region, which, as the paper reports, “had about 300 fewer long-term beds than the provincial average for a district this size a few years ago.” An additional ten long-term beds could be set up in the community for the cost of the startup fees for the abortuary.  The hospital abortuary is scheduled to open in January promising added running and maintenance costs not to mention the potential of costly law suits. Nevertheless, the radically pro-abortion BC Health Minister Penny Priddy has vowed to pay for the abortuary out of the health care budget if the local health board can not absorb the cost.
