  • Andrea Mrozek writes about the death of notorious Canadian abortionist Henry Morgentaler:

    Abortion is the “choice” in that critical moment in a woman’s life when hope went on holiday.

    This is Morgentaler’s legacy: The death of a child, renamed a choice, and without limit in Canada.

    He deserves neither all the credit nor all the blame, of course. When the Supreme Court of Canada heard the now infamous Morgentaler case in 1988, their intention was not to bestow abortion as an unfettered right. Instead, the court went so far as to acknowledge a legitimate public interest in restricting abortion, and then threw the question back to Parliament which has been holding the ball ever since.
