History Biographical
Henekh /Henry Morgentaler was born in Poland in March 1923. As a youth during World War II he was imprisoned at the Lodz Ghetto and later at the Dachau concentration camp. After the war Morgentaler emigrated to Canada and entered medical practice, becoming one of the first Canadian doctors to perform vasectomies, to insert intrauterine devices, and to provide birth control pills to unmarried women. He opened his first abortion clinic in 1969 in Montreal, eventually opening eight clinics in cities across Canada, and training more than one hundred doctors. As a pro-choice advocate he fought numerous legal battles challenging the constitutionality of the federal abortion law; losing in 1975, but winning the second time, in 1988.In 2008, Morgentaler was awarded the Order of Canada 'for his commitment to increased health care options for women, his determined efforts to influence Canadian public policy and his leadership in humanist and civil liberties organizations.' Morgentaler died at the age of 90 in May 2013. (The Morgentaler details are abridged from the Wikipedia entry under his name.)
