Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is willing to help ensure women in the United States who want an abortion can get one.

“We will make sure we continue to fight for better health and reproductive rights all around the world. It used to mean being there to fight for health and reproductive rights in the global south. We’ll help out in the United States if we need to as well,” Trudeau told reporters at the United Nations on Wednesday.

“As we see in the United States attempts to roll back rights that women have fought for for generations, the idea that there are young girls growing up in the United States who will have less rights over their own bodies than their mothers did is exactly what Canadians, Americans, and people all around the world are so concerned about,” he added.

Trudeau previously called the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade “horrific.”

“In Canada, we support unequivocally a women’s right to choose. It is a fundamental tenet of freedom,” Trudeau said.

He added that in his nation, medical professionals make the call on late-term abortions.

Trudeau did not specify what sort of “help” Canada may provide.

Currently in the U.S., women can still terminate a pregnancy, although some states have put restrictions in place in an effort to prevent late-term abortions.
