Supporters of the We Want Birth Committee gathered in Pioneer Square Saturday afternoon to mark the one year anniversary of the temporary close of obstetrics at Flin Flon General Hospital. They were joined by Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey who has raised the issue in the legislature in the past and says it’s important to keep drawing attention to the need for these services to return. He says it’s very important for women in this town to be able to give birth in this town, it’s also important for neighboring communities to be able to have their women come here and give birth and it’s important to this town to keep growing our health care facilities instead of shutting things down.
The group then marched down Main Street up to the hospital and back to Pioneer Square. You can learn more about the We Want Birth Committee on their Facebook page We Want Birth or you can email email@example.com.
