Sad that the Globe and Mail is a promoter of a worldview rather than an example of true journalism. The Globe’s article on Morgentaler is a dramatic portrayal of a defender of what the Globe holds dear. Though the Globe likes to present this as representative of Canadians and women the fact is it is representative of a singular perspective, some Canadians and some women. Tinted glasses for the tinted reader. Sad that this perspective hurts women and Canada.

Actually, I found some of the language in the Globe piece refreshing. Unlike when he received the Order of Canada, and the word abortion wasn’t once mentioned, this piece properly described him as “pro abortion rights” (although I would personally have left off the word “rights” there). Later on, the piece describes how “desperate women began showing up at his medical office begging him to help them get rid of unwanted fetuses.” Again, that is a fairly blunt description of an abortion.
The gloves are starting to come off folks. Abortion advocates aren’t able to hide behind platitudinous euphemisms anymore. And this kind of language won’t be comfortable to anyone but the most strident supporters of abortion. The Globe has shown where its loyalties lie, and used strong enough language that Canadians can decide really and truly if they agree with them.
The Globe must have been preparing for Morgentaler’s death for quite some time. This is a piece that has gone through several edits: it wasn’t thrown together in the several hours between the time of his passing and its posting.
