    Morgentaler was born in Lodz, Poland and came to Canada after the Second World War. He completed his medical studies at the Universite de Montreal and interned at the Royal Victoria Hospital. It was there that he happened upon a ward that made him realize the plight of women with unwanted pregnancies. It changed his life as well as the future rights of Canadian women.

    In 2008, Morgentaler received the Order of Canada, prompting an immediate backlash from abortion opponents. Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte, the Archbishop of Montreal, asked that he be removed from the order to protest Morgentaler's appointment. Turcotte's resignation was officially accepted by Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean later that year. He was among several abortion opponents who resigned from the order. The controversy surrounding Morgentaler made him a celebrity as his story yielded countless media profiles and a few television movies. Morgentaler trained more than 100 doctors to perform abortions and opened 20 clinics across the country.
