15. If I remember correctly...
They aren't all "free" in Canada - or they weren't a decade ago. I remember a guy I knew griping he had to come up with $300.00 to pay for one. I also remember other friends and people talking about paying for them. No idea what % of the cost of an abortion that covers.

I *think* you can get one done at the hospital for no out of pocket cost, but everyone I know that had one went to an abortion clinic so they could avoid the hassle of dealing with the hospital. Hospitals are just as the same sprawling mounds of white tile and pea green walls up there as they are in the US - just an unpleasant place to be in general. And my part of Canada ain't exactly high rollin' so I assume they had a good reason to them to drop the coin (discretion? comfort? convenience?).
