Honouring the dealers of death

Dr. Henry Morgentaler, Canada's leading crusader for the legalization of abortion, was awarded an honorary doctorate today by the University of Western Ontario:

"Over the last 37 years, I have dedicated myself to achieve rights to reproductive freedom and to provide facilities where women could obtain safe abortions in an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion," said Morgentaler.

"I decided to provide safe abortions on request on humanitarian grounds in defiance of a law which I considered unjust and cruel, exposing women to death and injury."

Indeed, Morgentaler's medical accomplishments, as a pioneer in the field of efficiently dealing out human death, rank right up there with notables such as Drs. Kevorkian, Mengele, and Rascher. Of course Morgentaler, a Jew, would never want to put himself in a position where he could be compared to a Nazi. Right?
