The Montreal Morgentaler Clinic was founded by Dr. Henry Morgentaler. As an activist who worked with many Canadian humanist associations, he protested Canada’s restrictive abortion laws. He performed abortions at his clinic for family medicine for many years, both before and after the law was changed in 1969 (when women could only have abortions in hospitals after being accepted by a three member abortion committee). He continued to fight hard for Canadian women’s right to have access to abortion without restrictive conditions, and in 1988 the abortion law was struck down by the Supreme Court of Canada, allowing women the right to choose for themselves.
In 1968, he opened the Morgentaler Clinic in Montreal, providing safe and confidential abortion and contraception services.
Dr. Morgentaler was a pioneer of abortion rights and provision. The clinic is now run by a team of medical professionals that have been with us for many years. We have continued Dr. Morgentaler’s legacy by successfully fighting for free and accessible services, and for the right to have no-protest zones around abortion clinics in Quebec.
Black Lives Matter
Racial injustice is real.
Montreal’s Morgentaler Clinic stands with black and indigenous communities. We strongly condemn racism, the discrimination and the violence perpetrated systemically against people of color. In cities and towns, big and small, people are protesting.
We cannot remain silent.
We stand united with you and are committed to listening and to learning more about racial injustice. We pledge to examine our personal and systemic biases toward persons of color in order to provide the best possible reproductive services for every person.
