Canadian Abortion Rights Pioneer Awarded Nation's Highest Civilian Honor

This is neat---Dr. Henry Morgentaler, a Canadian abortion rights activist, is getting the Order of Canada. Naturally, anti-choicers are wailing. The shamelessness of people will never cease to amaze me. The man is a hero to humanity who has helped save lives both in the physical sense (the lives of women who might have resorted to dangerous methods) and in the more philosophical sense (the way that your life is saved if it’s made more worth living because you are genuinely free). Anyway, Sirowski sent me the link and I’m sharing it with y’all, because people like Dr. Morgentaler are living reminders that there is good in the world.
