My Canadian hero

Dr. Henry Morgentaler is an abortion provider who has survived two attempts on his life. Thank the universe for brave men and woman like him.

I can take an anxious woman, who is in the biggest trouble she has ever experiences in her life, and by performing a five-minute operation, in comfort and dignity, I can give her back her life.

What idiot considers himself "pro-life" and then tries to kill a doctor?

Um. I thought I was your Canadian hero.

Scratch that. Heroes update their blogs.

They gave Morgentaler the Order of Canada a couple months ago. Jeezy Creezy did that not go over well in certain small-but-incredibly-vocal circles.

I'm guessing he won't get a booth at the Benton County fair.

wheelsonthebus - Militant idiots. Logic goes out the window when you're all rightous and what-not.

ferdinand - You're not my hero. You're my Canadian non-sexual gay crush. You would be my hero if you would, you know, update once every three months or so.

jen - Of course not. If they gave him a booth then they wouldn't have room for the 14 devoted to makeing sure that you know that if you have an abortion then you're a baby killing whore.

I sure don't agree with shooting at or taking the lives of 'doctors' who perform abortions.

I also don't agree with abortion. I'd like to see so much more time, effort, money, support, education... go into preventing abortion/ making adoption a great alternative.

I hope you don't mind if I go off-topic and thank you for your comment on my post at 5MFSN today. I hope you have a wonderful time at Disney! (Trish @ 5MFSN)

kareninkorea - No need to put "doctors" in quotes. These are actual doctors providing medical services for women. Obviously I'm a big fan of adoption. My own family is what it is because of it. Adoption is a wonderful alternative to parenting but it is not an alternative to pregnancy and birth. There will always be a need for abortion and I'm thankful that there are doctors working to keep it safe and accessable for the women who need them.

trish - I don't mind at all! I enjoyed your post. I bet a lot of people never even think of stuff like that on vacation!

This was educational; I appreciate the link. I'm against abortion personally, but I really struggle with the choice thing....thankfully, I've never been in the shoes to know, and I won't judge, except to say that I am totally and completely against abortions that are late in the pregnancy. I hope I never have to face this issue personally (with my kids, for example), but if I do, I guess I would like to know that there WAS a choice.
