FREDERICTON, August 20, 2003 ( – Abortion kingpin Henry Morgentaler is finally suing New Brunswick, the CBC reports. The octogenarian abortionist has complained since last October about the province’s refusal to subsidize his highly profitable private abortion clinics with provincial tax dollars, a refusal he calls “sexist, male chauvinist and oppressive.”  In its defence, filed in the Court of Queen’s Bench, New Brunswick says “medically necessary” medicare abortions are sufficiently available in the province’s hospitals. New Brunswick funds abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, as long as two doctors sign off. The province also says compliance with the Canada Health Act is for the federal government to determine, not the courts.  For the CBC report:   For related coverage:   For previous LifeSite coverage:  NEW BRUNSWICK REFUSING TO FUND MORGENTALER
