Storyboard Text

  • Thank you, Dr. Morgentaler, for being one of the only doctors brave enough to have opened an abortion clinic for those in need of safe, urgent medical care.
  • Of course. The life and health of women is a priority to me.
  • Our body our decision! 
  • Let him go!!!
  • This makes no sense!
  • You're under arrest for performing illegal abortions, once again.
  • The defense of necessity is present. The charges will be dropped, we can't enforce a law if the Jury won't convict.
  • It is my legal duty to protect women against unnecessary harm and put their lives first. I would be disobeying the law if I refused to perform the procedure.
  • But this time, the public was on his side. Protests and women's groups rallied against the law on his behalf. He will serve 18 months in prison.
  • Breaking news, Morgentaler yet again taken to court for performing illegal abortions.
  • Supreme Court of Canada.
  • Under the Charter of rights and freedoms, Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and the security.. We cannot take away these rights. Abortion shall therefore no longer be illegal.
  • Thank you for allowing us to have control over our own bodies.
  • I am very pleased to announced that abortion is no longer illegal in Quebec and Canada! Thank you all for your support.
  • Woo!! Thank you so much
