Abortion law battle By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) The final stages of Henry Morgentaler's crusade against this country's abortion laws begin Wednes- day in the Supreme Court of Canada. In legal terminology, Or. Morgentaler has been con- victed on a charge that "at Montreal on or about the 15th day of August, 1973, with the intent of procuring the mis- carriage of a female person employed means for the pur- pose of carrying out his inten- tion, I.E., manipulation and the use ot an instrument, thereby committing a criminal offence contrary to article 251 (1) of the Criminal Code." In fact, the bearded, Polish- born doctor was accused of performing six illegal abor- tions "on or about the 15th day of August, 1973." On orders of a Montreal judge, the Crown listed six dif- ferent charges against Dr. Morgentaler and proceeded with presumably its strongest case involving an abortion performed on a 26-year-old McGill University student. The record shows that a jury of 12 men last November declared the doctor not guilty of that charge. But the Quebec Court of Appeal wiped out the decision and substituted a ver- dict of guilty. A few months later, Dr. Morgentaler was sentenced to 18 months in jail. The laws Dr. Morgentaler THE UNIVERSITY of LETHBRIDGE presents SOUTHERN ALBERTA HISTORY A non-credit public service course conducted by DR. JAMES COUSINS A series of lectures on the history of southern Alberta by the man who has spent his adult life studying it.

DR. MORGENTALER calls unjust were approved by Parliament in 1969. APPROVAL NEEDED Boiled down, Parliament ruled that abortions may be performed only when the health of the mother is en- dangered. Such abortions must be performed in hospitals accredited by the provinces and must be approv- ed in advance by special com- mittees that hospitals may es- tablish. It-is public record that Dr. Morgentaler defied these laws. He has openly admitted performing thousands of abor- tions in his Montreal clinic. He even appeared on national television on Mother's Day last year to demonstrate how he performs abortions. He has thus become the cen- tral figure in the highly-emo- tional debate on whether Canadian abortion laws are too liberal or too strict. A number of organizations sprang up in Canada to oppose his views; others were formed to aid him. A number of these organ- izations have hired lawyers to present additional arguments in the high court next week, including the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Foundation for Women in Crisis, Alliance for Life, Association of Doctors in Quebec For Respect of Life, the Common Front for the Respect of Life and the Foun- dation for Life. Because he has readily ad- mitted performing abortions contrary to the law, Dr. Morgentaler must convince the nine Supreme Court justices that the laws are contrary to the Bill of Rights or beyond the power of Parlia- ment to enact if he is to stay out of jail. The Morgentaler defence also includes arguments that the abortion he performed and which the Quebec appeal court said was illegal did in fact come within present abortion laws. It is possible that the Su- preme Court would agree with that argument alone and ac- quit the doctor without deciding the larger issues. But what is more likely to occur, is that the Supreme Court will face squarely all of the arguments and make judgments on whether Parlia- ment acted within its powers, that the laws do or do not contravene the Bill of Rights, and whether they are con- stitutional or not.
