Part Two of The Current
Laws and Mores: The legal battles of Dr. Morgentaler
Members of Parliament could vote on a controversial private member's bill as early as next month... a motion to re-examine the issue of when a fetus becomes a person. Many accuse Tory backbencher Stephen Woodworth of trying to re-open the debate on abortion. Few though expect the bill to survive.
This country has been without an abortion law since 1988 when the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the law after an aggressive legal battle by Dr. Henry Morgentaler.
The documentary Laws and Mores: the legal battles of Dr. Morgentaler was produced by Piya Chattopadhyay.
