Abortion Doctor Receives Order Of Canada

[Ottawa Citizen] Dr. Henry Morgentaler, who single-handedly brought abortion rights to the national agenda when he opened an illegal abortion clinic in Montreal in 1969, was named a member of the Order of Canada yesterday.

“For me, it’s got a symbolic importance that it was announced on Canada Day,” added author and feminist Judy Rebick.
