CBC.ca: Throughout his life, Henry Morgentaler has been shrouded in controversy.
Morgentaler was born in Poland in 1923, he lived through Auschwitz, and survived the Holocaust. He came to Montreal, Canada at the end of World War II.
As a 'Humanist leader' he promoted the idea that people had a right to control their own sexuality and reproduction, without interference by the state.
Throughout his career he has faced several trials and was acquitted each time by a jury.
Morgentaler now operates six clinics in Canada providing care for women in need of abortions and contraceptive services.
