Democracy on Trial: The Morgentaler Affair

Canadian physician Dr Morgentaler’s fight for legal and safe abortions between 1970 and 1976 and its serious legal consequences for him form the centre of Democracy on a Trial: The Morgentaler Affair. This compelling docudrama demonstrates the complexity of this case, which began with the demand for a Canadian abortion law and turned into an explosive civil rights case. Dr Morgentaler’s commitment resulted in unique legal progress: Since 1988 Canada has been the only country in which there is no single law concerning abortion any more.
