Premier's Statement on the Death of Dr. Henry Morgentaler

Office of the Premier

Premier Kathleen Wynne released the following statement on the death of Dr. Henry Morgentaler:

"Our country has lost a man of great courage, conviction and personal bravery.

Due in large part to his efforts and advocacy, women in Ontario and across Canada have the right to control their reproductive choices. Although the path he chose was not easy, he dedicated himself to ensuring that women had access to safe medical abortions.

His contributions to a fair society have been felt around the globe, and my thoughts are with his friends and family at this time."
