Was Justice Bertha Wilson a Misogynist?

Canadian Poor-Choicers are up in arms over the motion put forward by MP Stephen Woodworth to examine the humanity of the unborn child.

This motion has been dubbed The Bertha Wilson Motion.


In Honour of Justice Bertha Wilson who said:

The precise point in the development of the foetus at which the state’s interest in its protection becomes “compelling” I leave to the informed judgement of the legislature which is in a position to receive guidance on the subject from all the relevant disciplines. It seems to me, however, that it might fall somewhere in the second trimester.” (R v Morgentaler 1988)

Not Guilty at The Abortion Gang characterizes this attempt to examine the humanity of the unborn child as "misogyny".

However, Justice Bertha Wilson, the Supreme Court Judge whom feminists love to quote, has ruled that it is up to Parliament to examine the issue and decide when the State has a compelling interest to protect the unborn child.

Is Justice Bertha Wilson a misogynist?

Are the millions of Canadians who support some protection for the unborn misogynists?

Is there an epidemic of women hatred in this country?

Or are feminists just hysterical?

Lets put the question to feminists.
