This project investigates how Canada's decentralized federalist structure allow provincial governments to obstruct abortion access, despite national legalization. By employing policy analysis, geospatial mapping, and quantitative sentiment analysis of parliamentary debates, the study aims to identify regional restrictions and policy determinants perpetuating interprovincial disparities. My goal is to inform evidence-based policy recommendations to initiate overdue reform for equitable access to abortion and other politically contentious healthcare services.
