Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit https://upei.bookware3000.ca/Course/campus to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact bookstore@upei.ca for any questions.


 
 

Crossing Troubled Waters (Pdf)


Accessing abortion services is challenging in many countries around the world. Barriers result from poor access to health care, geographic location, legal restrictions, abortion stigma, and moral conservatism. Repeated studies indicate that restricting access to abortion does not prevent it happening, but rather displaces it elsewhere and often results in unsafe abortion contributing to maternal mortality. 


Those living on islands face particular challenges presented by their geographic isolation including travel to other jurisdictions, which is financially and emotionally burdensome. This book shines a light on two islands -- Ireland (North and South) and Prince Edward Island, Canada -- and considers for each island, the nature of the discourse of abortion on the island, the impacts that restrictions have had, ongoing efforts to improve access, and recent activist successes.
