Here is a CBC video aired in 1967 of Dr. Morgentaler talking about why he supports abortion. It is always useful to hear the actual people we read about in textbooks talk about what they believe in. First hand interviews can provide a new perspective: http://www.cbc.ca/archives/categories/health/reproductive-issues/dr-henry-morgentaler-fighting-canadas-abortion-laws/morgentaler-enters-the-abortion-debate.html
What I liked about this video best was when he said the slogan “every child a wanted child, every mother a willing mother” this really stuck with me. I think it makes a lot of sense, and is one of the best arguments I have heard in the support for abortion. It just makes sense. Why would anyone be against the idea that every child born should be wanted? Everyone wants to be wanted and everyone thinks children should be wanted and loved by their parents. If women have access to reproductive technologies than every child born to these women will be wanted and cared for.
