MONTREAL, Quebec (LifeSiteNews) – Quebec has dropped its requirement that women receive an ultrasound before being prescribed abortion pills, despite it being standard medical practice to determine an unborn child’s age and to rule out ectopic pregnancy.
According to CTV News, hundreds of doctors appealed to the Quebec College of Physicians to implement this new policy so it would be easier for women to obtain abortions. Other provinces scrapped the pre-abortion pill ultrasound requirement in 2019; Quebec temporarily suspended it in February 2021 due to COVID-19.
“In the last few days, the College has decided that this measure will be made permanent,” the Quebec College of Physician’s spokesperson Leslie Labranche told CTV News.
Ever since the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and returning the ongoing debate over the barbaric practice of abortion back to the states, left-wing zealots, politicians, and rioters have taken to the streets and the airwaves to fan the flames of division.
And perhaps no one has epitomized this unhinged rage more than twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Taking her anger out on Justice Clarence Thomas, Clinton has once again shown her propensity for bitterness, hostility towards our Constitution and rule of law, and hatred towards those with differing philosophies from her own.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Justice Clarence Thomas against hateful attacks by radical liberals like Hillary Clinton.
The Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which saw a 6-3 majority rule in favor of overturning both Roe v. Wade and 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey, was a long time coming: In 1973, seven Justices of the Supreme Court (all males) created a phony constitutional "right" to abortion out of thin air, opening the floodgates to practically unfettered access to abortion across the nation and resulting in the killing of more than 60 million innocent, unborn babies in the nearly 50 years that followed.
But with Roe now out of the picture, this decision will officially fall back to the states, who, by way of their elected lawmakers, may now opt to permit, restrict, or even outright ban the practice of abortion altogether.
And while the majority opinion in Dobbs was penned by Associate Justice Samuel Alito, most of the left's ire in the aftermath of its publication has been directed at a different Justice: Conservative constitutionalist Clarence Thomas, currently the bench's only African-American member, who wrote his own separate concurrence acknowledging other past cases which were decided on similar, constitutionally-lacking bases that could potentially be revisited in the future.
Perhaps no disgruntled abortion supporter has gone out of their way more to deride this ruling and Justice Thomas than former First Lady and Obama Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who let her utter contmept for the unborn, the Constitution, and Justice Thomas show in a CBS interview with Gayle King earlier this week.

In her deeply personal attack, Clinton claimed that Justice Thomas, a Yale Law School classmate of hers in the early 1970s (when Roe was first decided), was a "person of grievance for as long as I've known him. Resentment, grievance, anger."
She then went on to criticize the court's ruling in Dobbs, repeating without evidence that "women are going to die" as a result, all while (predictably) ignoring the potentially millions of unborn babies who will now live because of Justices' timely decision.
So while pro-abortion liberals like Hillary Clinton continue to lament the outcome of Dobbs and smear conservative Justices like Clarence Thomas with personal attacks simply for abiding by the text of the Constitution, the pro-life movement and millions of Americans who believe in the constitutional right to life can take pride in nearly half a century's work to achieve the end of Roe, and begin the real work of ending the barbaric practice of abortion in the United States.
Now is the time to put out-of-touch elitists like Hillary Clinton on notice that momentum is on the side of life once again and that America is rejecting the culture of death that has penetrated our way of life for far too long.
Now is the time to stand with pro-life, conservative constitutionalists like Justice Clarence Thomas!
SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Justice Clarence Thomas against attacks from leftists like Hillary Clinton, and thank him for courageously standing up for life and the Constitution!

Dr. Dario Garcia, President of Quebec’s Association for Obstetricians and Gynecologists, claimed that the ultrasound requirement can bar women from choosing abortion.
“It’s really hard, nowadays especially, to get access to laboratory tests or imaging tests,” he asserted. He further stated that having an ultrasound “doesn’t change the results.”
Serious complications can occur if a woman farther along in pregnancy than nine weeks takes the abortion pill regimen, or if a woman with an ectopic pregnancy does.
“Physicians must use their clinical judgment and decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not an ultrasound is necessary,” Labranche said.
In 2019, when Health Canada changed the rule for most provinces, it claimed that the risks of the ultrasound outweighed the benefits. However, it failed to explain what risks are posed by a doctor verifying a preborn child’s age or showing a mother what her unborn baby looks like.
“Missing an ectopic [pregnancy] could be life-threatening to a woman,” Christa Brown, nurse and Abortion Pill Rescue Coordinator for Heartbeat International, told Pregnancy Help News. “If no ultrasound is performed, women will be inadvertently prescribed chemical abortions beyond that [nine-week] mark and even when the baby is not in the uterus.”
In a chemical abortion, the first pill attempts to starve the child developing in utero by blocking the pregnancy hormone progesterone. However, after taking this pill, a woman can still change her mind. She can undergo emergency procedures to reverse the effects of the first pill. Provided she has not taken the second pill, her baby can often be saved through this process, which is known as Abortion Pill Reversal.
Chemical abortions, which when successful are lethal to unborn babies, are often painful for mothers and have been known to cause infection or hemorrhage which can require emergency care. In the U.S. between 2000 and 2011, 14 women died from complications following chemical abortions.
Despite this, Garcia celebrated the new policy, adding, “We still have work to do,” as he advocated for widespread use of the abortion pill.
