The Scott Clinic

After 29 years of providing abortion care, the Scott Cinic is closing. It has been an honour to have been able to care for patients for this length of time.

We are so grateful to our patients and to our patients' doctors, all of whom have given us the unique privilege of learning so much about all aspects of reproductive health.

We are also very grateful to all of the nurses and administrative staff who have, over these 29 years, been indispensible partners in the provision of excellent care.

If the intelligence, energy, commitment and dedication of the young people who have worked and trained with us are any indication, the future of abortion care is very bright indeed.

Our generation is proud to have been able to help today's women access the legal right to abortion.

This current generation now has the opportunity and responsibility to build its own vision of this right.

Reproductive health care is a basic human right. Abortion services are an essential part of reproductive health care for women.

The Scott Clinic provides abortion services under local anesthetic in a freestanding clinic setting. We aim to maintain the highest possible standards in an atmosphere of respect and dignity. We work to fully integrate our services with our patients' already established medical care and within the framework of existing medical services and practices in our province and country.

The Scott Clinic was founded in 1986 by Dr. Robert H. Scott and Maria Corsillo. It was licensed as an Independent Health Facility in 1991. Dr. Scott was prosecuted along with Dr. Henry Morgentaler resulting in the landmark 1988 Supreme Court decision which decriminalized abortion in Canada.

In 1998, Dr. Scott was awarded the National Abortion Federation's C. Lalor Burdick Award as one of the unsung heroes in abortion care. Maria Corsillo, who has been the clinic manager since 1986, served on the Board of Directors of the National Abortion Federation from 1992 - 2000.
