Rescind The Order of Canada from Henry Morgentaler

This petition is for Americans and citizens of countries outside Canada. Canadian citizens please use this petition here: http://www.ipetition.com/petition/Morgentaler/ ------------ PETITION To: Governor General Michaelle Jean and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, As citizens of other countries, we, the undersigned, firmly believe that the recent appointment of Henry Morgentaler to the Order of Canada should be promptly revoked. Like the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Order of Canada is the highest civilian honor. The criterion to be met is \"a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation\". However, due to the extremely divisive and morally contentious nature of Mr. Morgentaler\'s practice, many people from the international community do not believe his work to be positive, but rather dangerous and controversial. In the eyes of these citizens of other countries, his long career as an abortion doctor has caused grave harm to countless women and unborn children. Taking the life of an unborn child is not something that deserves praise or accolades. By signing this petition, we are expressing our deep concern over this matter and demand that Mr. Morgentaler\'s Order of Canada appointment be rescinded by Ordinance of the Governor General. ------------ Your email address will not be published on-line or given to any third party except the Governor General of Canada and the Prime Minister, upon presentation of the petition. Campaign Life Coalition will update the signers of this petition via its affiliated LifeSiteNews service.
