R. VS MORGENTALER

Morgentaler 25 Years Later: We've Come a Long Way Baby

The anti-choice camp has derided the Morgentaler judgment as imposing a feckless, and ultimately lawless, regime governing abortion. I would propose, however, that they look at the Morgentaler decision through a legal lens. In taking out the emotional and religious rhetoric that is so often associated with abortion, the decision can be seen for what it really is: guaranteeing a woman's right to equality in this country. I shall forever be perplexed as to why some people are unable to see that as anything but positive.
