"Women considering an abortion in Nova Scotia will soon be able to call a toll-free number (1-833-352-0719) will be available starting this Monday. (February 5th) to access information, arrange testing and set up an appointment.

The phone line will eliminate the need for a doctor's referral to obtain the time-sensitive procedure.
