Hey all; just abusing Livejournal for political purposes again. This was sent out by my crazy history prof; thought it might appeal to some of you.

The University of Western Ontario has decided to give Dr. Henry Morgentaleran honorary Doctor of Laws degree on June 16. Unfortunately, the university has been getting a large amount of anti-choice mail protesting this decision and slandering Dr. Morgentaler. In contrast, there has been next to no pro-choice mail in support, so far. Dr. Morgentaler is a hero to Canadian women for securing the right to choose abortion in 1988, in the Supreme Court Morgentaler decision that threw out Canada's abortion law.

Could you possibly help with a short, affirming e-mail to the administrators at the university? Below are the names and e-mail addresses of the
President of the University and the Chair of the Board of Govenors. It is really important that as many people as possible write to these administrators praising the decision to confer the law degree on Dr. Morgentaler as soon as possible. The anti's are holding a vigil on Wednesday at 2pm. And could you pass this message on to other Canadians who would be willing to take a few moments to send a note of praise? Thank you so much for your support!

Dr. Paul Davenport, President, UWO
