Why is it Morgentaler–that infamous champion of “women’s rights”–who is challenging New Brunswick’s abortion laws? Why not find one of those many women supposedly denied access? Could it be that those women don’t exist–or perhaps on the flip side, they now have a child and don’t really regret that lack of access after all?
The province had argued Morgentaler could not have standing because only a woman who needed to use the clinic had the right to challenge abortion policy.
Morgentaler: Profit (in 2002 the paper Le Droit revealed his gross annual revenue was $11 million) seems more of a motivation than “women’s rights.” Honestly. Where I generally have no problem with men fighting to defend women, this is one case where I’d rather the women fought for themselves.
