On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau voiced his support for a woman's "right to choose" to get a "safe and legal" abortion.

"The right to choose is a woman’s right and a woman’s right alone. Every woman in Canada has a right to a safe and legal abortion. We’ll never back down from protecting and promoting women’s rights in Canada and around the world," Trudeau said in a tweet on Tuesday.

On Monday evening, a draft opinion document was leaked from the Supreme Court in the United States saying that the court has voted to overturn Roe v Wade.

The opinion's author, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wrote, "Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences."

On Tuesday morning before the leak had been verified, New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh gave his opinion on the matter, saying: "I want to start off today just reflecting on the leak in the United States and what it must feel like for people in the United States, for women, to wake up and see their fundamental right to have a legal abortion potentially and very dangerously threatened," Singh said in Ottawa on Tuesday.

"It looks like it will be overturned, and that's something that's deeply concerning," he said.

"We know that when abortion rights are denied or abortion services are denied, the result is women die. It's deeply concerning to see that happen.

"In Canada, the right is secure, but what we're seeing as a trend and as a problem is that access is in question," Singh continued.

"Many communities do not have access to legal abortions... Women have to drive hundreds of kilometers. So that's something we have to continue to fight.

"... The right is important, but what's more important than the right is access to the right," he said.

The Conservative Interim leader Candice Bergen has remained silent so far, and there are reports that the party is asking MPs to keep quiet on the leaked US Supreme Court decision.

"Conservatives will not be commenting on draft rulings leaked from the Supreme Court of the United States. Thank you," read the one-line memo, first reported by the Globe and Mail and confirmed by Global News.
