Dear Ms. Savours:

Re: Henry Morgentaler & Order of Canada

I am writing to you as a Psychologist and as a concerned citizen regarding the above-named recipient of the Order of Canada. As a Psychologist I have practiced over 30 years in the area of child welfare and have been involved in a number of projects involving children’s rights. I have devoted much of my professional life to providing service, support and advocacy for those children who fit into Dr. Henry Mogentaler’s category of “unwanted children.” I was shocked and very disturbed at the decision to award Henry Morgentaler an Order of Canada. This decision, in my view, sends a most unfortunate message to society and especially to people who have had experiences of rejection but who, thankfully, escaped the ministrations of Dr. Morgentaler. I do not share his views that these people who experienced parental rejection are undesirables– the type of people who are likely to wreak havoc on society–the type of people who end up at war crimes tribunals.

As a private citizen, I am also aware of the disparity of response to Mr. David Ahenakew’s negative attitudes and Dr. Morgentaler’s harmful attitudes and actions. In keeping with the Advisory Council’s recommendations and actions by the governor general in revoking Mr. David Ahenakew’s Order of Canada membership, it is my position that it will be necessary to revoke Henry Morgentaler’s Order of Canada in accordance with your Article 25(c) of the Constitution of the Order of Canada.

Mr. David Ahenakew’s membership was revoked on the basis that not revoking it would “bring the Order into disrepute because of his stated negative attitudes toward the Jews”. Mr. Ahenakew reportedly blamed the holocaust on the Jews, obviously an unfortunate and uninformed idea. However, there is no evidence that he actually assaulted or killed any Jews.

On the other hand, we have Dr. Henry Morgentaler who has put forward a similarly untutored idea about unwanted children being responsible for the holocaust and (from what appears from my understanding of his stated opinions) all types of hate-based behaviour in society. There is absolutely no scientific basis for his ideas, (many of the Nazis, for instance, were ordinary well-adjusted family men, as documented by serious psychological and sociological researchers, e.g. Hannah Arendt); but Henry Morgentaler has used these prejudicial and dangerous attitudes about children to justify and promote the killing of thousands of infants. Whereas Mr. Ahenakew’s ill-informed theories have not resulted in deaths, but he has nonetheless been deprived of his Order of Canada as a result of his opinions, Dr. Mogentaler’s ill-informed theories have resulted in the murder of thousands of unborn children who have been labelled, by him, as undesirables and dangerous. In essence, the Order of Canada has bestowed honour on someone who espouses attitudes and policies which are virtually identical to the Nazis’ beliefs that the Jews were undesirable, dangerous people—but in this case, it is rejected babies who are the dangerous undesirables. (It is interesting how the migration of the notion from “undesired” to “undesirable” can so easily occur, the ease of which should be sobering and instructive).

It is, therefore, untenable, that while Mr. Ahenakew’s Order is revoked, that Dr. Morgentaler continues to tarnish the reputation of the Order of Canada by retaining his. I trust that this information will prompt a rapid response to bring the Order of Canada into compliance and consistency with its earlier rulings.

Yours truly,

One Response to “Real Doctor Opposes Morgentaler’s Order of Canada”
  1. Garry Sahl says:

    Real science proves unborn babies are living human beings.

    Dr. Bernard Nathanson says that real-time ultrasound, which gives a moving picture of the child in the womb; electronic heart monitoring, which detects fetal heartbeats, brainwave monitors, which measure fetal brain activity, fetoscopy, which allows a physician to actually eyeball the baby, simply astounded him.

    Such techniques as cordocentesis even allow medical diagnosis, treatment and surgery in utero.

    “There was nothing religious about it I finally came to the conviction that this was my patient. This was a person! This was purely a change of mind as a result of fantastic science and technology.” Why are our universities teaching their students that it is ok to abort them ?

    Dr. Nathanson fastened an ultrasound machine to a woman undergoing an abortion, and produced ” SILENT SCREAM”, a film that horrified the nation. It showed the fetus trying desperately to move away from the vacuum, and then its body parts were successively sucked off. The film produced a massive campaign of defamation agaist Dr. Nathanson from the liberal minded.

    This only made him more determined, so he decided to show an abortion from inside the womb. He attached a camera to a fetoscope and inserted it during a D&E abortion. The resulting film was “ECLIPSE OF REASON”. And so abortion is.

    Abortion is the murder of babies! Please stop killing them Canada and please stop telling young doctors, and future judges, and all the other students in our universities that it is alright to abort them! This is effecting our entire culture in a very evil way.

    Godless people don’t care, but we must care. Our courts have institutionalized atheism through our schools to almost everyone. What the Humanists have done is given the power over life and death to unelected socially engineered judges. We are now a Godless Canada. This is certainly not the country our fathers fought for in the great wars.

    Lets take it back for our future and our children’s, and lets put a stop to our government institutionalizing atheism through our universities and courts to almost everyone. In a democracy the people have the power to change things. Lets use that power to make a better Canada or we will have to answer for it in the end.
