TORONTO, Aug 7 (LSN) – The feature article in Chatelaine’s September 1998 issue released yesterday attempts to glorify an abortionist whom they dub the “angel of choice” however, the facts presented in the piece reveal a subversive pro-abortionist whose claim to be pro-“choice” is mocked by his own admissions. The article calls the abortionist-“hero” Dr. G for fear of deadly violence from “anti-choice militants.”  Chatelaine describes Dr. G surreptitiously performing abortions at a Catholic hospital where he realizes fully that it is forbidden. When caught by hospital officials for a prohibited (laminaria tent insertion)  preparatory procedure for abortions Dr. G was reprimanded by the hospital but as the story notes “allowed them to believe it wouldn’t happen again.”“Dr. G claims to be pro-“choice:” he says that he honours a woman’s choice in the matter. “Whatever decision you make will be the right decision for you at the time, and nobody else can decide for you,”  he tells them. However, in describing one case of a late-term abortion on a 17 year old mother, Dr. G proves himself a liar. He reveals that he arrived late to commit the girl’s abortion and she had had laminaria insertion already but decided not to go ahead with the procedure. Dr. G. recalled, “So, I explain, ‘Your cervix is now wide open, and if we don’t carry on with this procedure you could lose the pregnancy in a day to five days or maybe a couple of weeks, and maybe you could have a baby who is born extremely premature and brain-damaged.’ She then says, ‘I can look after a brain-damaged baby; I just gotta get out of here; my son’s waiting at home, and I can’t wait any longer.’” He went on to boast,  “Fortunately, I was able to convince her she was now on a one-way street, but that kind of whimsical reaction really at times makes you wonder.
