    The National Post breaks down the most recent complete numbers from the Canadian Institute for Health Information on abortion in Canada, gathered from provincial and territorial ministries of health, hospitals and independent abortion clinics (it doesn’t include fee-for-service abortion data because it’s of varying quality). While data from hospitals and clinics alone underestimates the number of abortions performed in Canada annually, for now it’s the best way to produce comparable Canadian data. Below is a look at the 93,755 induced abortions reported in 2009 (the most recent year for which data were available).
