Today is the 25th anniversary of the Morgentaler decision that struck down the law against abortion. Join the celebration tonight organized by the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics.
On October 23, 2012, following the pan-Canadian day of action for reproductive justice (organized by the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada), the Toronto International Socialists organized a public forum on "how we won abortion rights", featuring longstanding pro-choice and socialist activist Carolyn Egan. Watch the talk and the discussion here.
