Christmas, liberation and Morgentaler

Over the past year, Canada has heard much of Henry Morgentaler. The abortionist has continued to champion the view that in order to be truly liberated, women must have the right to abort the children conceived within them. As a youngster in Poland in the 1920s, Morgentaler grew up in a family where religion was relegated to the dustbin. His father was an atheist who not only despised the religion of the newly independent Poland, but also rejected the Judaic religious ... (Continue reading)

Peter Ryan and Henry Morgentaler were sitting in the "counselling room" of Morgentaler's Frederiction, N.B. abortuary, when Ryan pulled out from his pocket a plastic model of a 12-week-old pre-born child. "So you're saying that at this stage, it would not be a baby?" said Ryan to Canada's most prominent abortionist. "Oh no, that there looks like a baby," Morgentaler replied.

The remainder of Morgentaler's charges (the $425 facility fees) became the responsibility ... (Continue reading)

Morgentaler renews campaign for P.E.I. taxpayer funding

Like the groundhog, Henry Morgentaler has surfaced again with his perennial campaign to establish government-funded abortuaries – his abortuaries – in every province. He has written a letter to new federal Health Minister Anne McLellan pointing out that five provincial governments – P.E.I., Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia – refuse to pay for clinic abortions.

Maritime reflections

'Not in the slightest contrite' in continuing to protest abortion Henry Morgentaler, Canada's most flamboyant abortionist, is an in-your-face kinda guy. That's presumably why he chose a location adjacent to a junior high school and within sight of several churches for his new Fredericton, N.B., abortuary. Of course, Henry was on hand for the grand opening, milking as much publicity as he could from the occasion. And of course the media eagerly lapped it up. Reportedly, the nine anti-abortion protesters on hand ... (Continue reading)
