The Death of Dr. Henry Morgentaler, the Abortion Revolutionist

Dr. Henry who helped closed 'abortuary' in Canada has finally headed to the mortuary. Though seen by some as hero and others as murderer. It is said that the two decades of relentless activism of Dr. Henry Morgentaler on abortion right for women changed the legal landscape of Canada and eventually led to the 1988 landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision that gave women the right to obtain abortion care. Morgentaler, who was born in Lodz, Poland, and came to Canada after the Second World War has died at age 90, more than four decades after breaking the law at the time and opening the country's first abortion clinic in Montreal.
