thank you, dr. henry morgentaler

Canada lost a true hero today, someone who spent the better part of his life defending the rights and freedoms of others.

From the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Morgentaler decision:

Jillian Bardsley, Medical Students for Choice, Toronto Chapter, on Canada's lack of abortion providers, and what students are doing about it

Michele Landsberg, author, former columnist for Toronto Star, instrumental in writing about abortion and other feminist issues

Angela Robinson, Women's College Hospital, on anti-abortion by stealth, and how she found the movement

Author and activist Judy Rebick, with memories of working alongside Dr. Morgentaler, as "the girl from the clinic," and the widespread public support for their work.

Dr. Morgentaler's obituary in the New York Times.

Rabble has collected some nice tributes from Canadians.
