When it comes to the manner in which Morgentaler was handed his Order of Canada, many cringe (among a ton of other things) at this:
The selection committee even managed to craft Morgentaler’s citation without using the word abortion. He was chosen “for his commitment to increased health care options for women, his determined efforts to influence Canadian public policy and his leadership in humanist and civil liberties organizations.”
There you go, who’s against “increased health care options for women?”
Nothing brings this home like a good old Canadian simile. Read this one on Facebook.
I don’t understand why people try to pussyfoot around the issue. Morgentaler is abortion plain and simple. Not debating the abortion issue over this decision would be like not mentioning coffee and donuts when describing Tim Hortons to a foreigner. They are integral and connected at the very core of the issue.
I know, weird analogy… but you see my point.
