Administrative history

The establishment of the Kingston branch of the Canadian Abortion Rights Action League on Thursday April 7, 1981, was in reaction to an escalation of pro-life organizing that was putting women's right to choice at risk in the region. Pro-choice activism was initiated through the Kingston Action Committee on the Status of Women in 1980, and in February of 1981 two representatives from the national organization of CARAL came to Kingston to encourage the formation of a chapter. The organization had existed nationally since 1974; their charter was to assure that "no woman is denied the right to a safe, legal abortion" and to gain recognition that the right to a safe, legal abortion is a fundamental human right.
