NOVA SCOTIA, Oct 31 (LSN) – Grace Maternity Hospital, the renowned Nova Scotia centre for birth and premature care, has just announced that it has begun construction of an abortion ward on the sixth floor. Until two years ago, when it became a government facility, it was run by the Salvation Army.

Women in the area are distressed that the only hospital in the area to go to for deliveries will now be killing babies on the floor above the delivery ward. The new ‘‘Well Womens Health Clinic’’ project, as it has been called was kept secret until the beginning of construction in attempts to avoid public protest.
