Dr. Henry Morgentaler is going to receive an Order of Canada.
Now I think abortion is a necessary evil. From the Islamic point of view I know some people say it's permissible before 120 days as the soul hasn't yet transferred to the foetus. After that it's allowed only if the mother is in danger.
From the secular point of view I get it that it's the women's body and her choice.
And then I read an article like this.
Honour for Morgentaler is long overdue
If you read the article than it is clear why she thinks abortion is great. If all else fails and you are 'dumb' enough to get pregnant, then it's a great method of birth control.
I thought we in the 20th century has moved on to enlightedness. Apparently I am still a barbarian.
Here's the way I look at it. If you don't want a kid don't fuck anybody. If you are in a relationship with your husband and you get pregnant - it's part of the game. Deal with it.
