Dr. Morgentaler is a hero to Canadian women.

Even with no restrictions, we should pay close attention to this part:
"Even though there's no gestational limits in Canada, over 90% of abortions are done in the first trimester, only 2-3% are done after 16 weeks, and no doctor does abortions past 20 or 21 weeks except for compelling health or genetic reasons. Our overall abortion rate is about 16 per 1000 women of child-bearing age per year, a fairly low rate compared to other developed countries. And about 80% of Canadian women use some form of contraception (compared to 64% of American women). "

Just because something is unregulated doesn't mean it will be a free for all.

That is very interesting! How responsible we are!

I also discovered that 49% of Candians consider themselves to be pro-choice compared to 27% pro-life. (The rest were undecided or did not reply) According to a survey in 2008 by the National Post.

I absolutely love how liberated Canada is when it comes to personal rights and freedoms.
