Campaign Life Coalition is appalled that Henry Morgentaler should even be considered for the Order of Canada


    TORONTO, June 28 /CNW/ - It has come to the attention of Campaign Life
Coalition (CLC) that the Governor General intends to bestow the Order of
Canada on abortionist Henry Morgentaler on July 1st.
    "It is dreadful that this honour should even be considered for a man
who's only claim to fame is that he is a professional killer of defenseless
babies in their mothers' wombs," said Jim Hughes, National President of
Campaign Life Coalition. "Those who have received this prestigious medal
should return it because it will have been devalued and disgraced," he
continued.
    "If Morgentaler had any integrity he would refuse the medal", said Mary
Ellen Douglas, National Organizer of CLC. "This presentation should be given
to people who have made Canada a better place to live and the elimination of
thousands of human beings who would have contributed to the future of Canada
is a disgrace not an honour."
    Campaign Life Coalition calls on the Federal Government to address the
Governor General stating the inappropriateness of this action. Concerned
people should contact the Governor General's office and express their disgust.
