FREDERICTON, NB Dec 4 (LSN)  Henry Morgentaler, the father of abortion in Canada, pleaded with doctors in Fredericton last month to agree to commit abortions at his abortuary.

On Tuesday, the Canadian Medical Post reported that Morgentaler hopes to find local abortionists to staff his abortuary so that the government would be pressured into funding […]
