Abortionist: It is “irresponsible” to persuade young woman not to abort

Canadian abortionist Henry Morgentaler says:

“… When a young girl does find herself pregnant, she should be advised, indeed encouraged to have an abortion under conditions of medical safety and emotional support. To persuade her, force her, or shame her into completing her pregnancy, seems totally irresponsible. From all points of view it would be better for her to become a mother later in her life, when she is more mature, has a stable relationship, and is ready and able to care for a child.”
