Many supporters and alumni of the University of Western Ontario are -- rightly -- gravely offended by the University’s decision to award an honorary degree to one of Canada’s worst offenders against the right to life provisions of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms: the notorious abortionist Henry Morgentaler.
Morgentaler has become wealthy by participating in and promoting the silent holocaust that has snuffed out the lives of more than two million Canadian babies.
Here is a copy of the letter Ron Gray sent to UWO; you may wish to add your own letter of protest.

Mr. Paul Davenport, President and Vice-Chancellor University of Western Ontario, Suite 2, 1151 Richmond Street, London ON, N6A 5B8
Dear Mr. Davenport,
I was distressed to learn that the University of Western Ontario plans to award an honorary degree to the notorious abortionist, Henry Morgentaler. It would take a great deal of space for me to write, and a great deal of your time for you to read, all my objections to this award; but if I condense my reasons, I hope and pray that you'll take the time to read and evaluate them.
Canada, like most of the nations in the developed world, faces a serious crisis of under-population in the decades ahead, according to the United Nations. http://www.un.org/esa/%20population/unpop.htm
Abortion and contraception are significant contributors to this trend. But even more important, every abortion is the deliberate killing of an innocent human being. We will never know how many artists, scientists, philosophers, philanthropists, and teachers have had their lives snuffed out by men like Henry Morgentaler. Why? Because they were conceived at an inconvenient time or in inconvenient circumstances. To impose a death sentence on an innocent child, merely for the "crime" of being inconvenient, reduces the intrinsic value of every human life.
Furthermore, there is strong and growing evidence that abortion drastically increases the mother's risk of breast cancer and serious psychological disturbance. It is surely a grave violation of the Hippocratic Oath's pledge to "do no harm" to terminate a pregnancy when such risks are known to be present.
Dr. Morgentaler once said, "If I thought it was a baby, I wouldn't do an abortion." The medical evidence that the fetus is a distinct human life—it has its own unique genetic code, and in half the cases, even its gender is different than the mother's—is so powerful that such a statement can only reflect willful ignorance. It is questionable whether someone who remains willfully ignorant of the medical facts in his field should even be allowed to practice medicine, let alone be honored by one of Canada's finest universities.
Please reverse this odious decision. It can only offend a large number of the University's potential friends and supporters.

What does the Bible say about God’s morals for our society?
28 And to man He (God) said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.’ (Job 28:28)
1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly. Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord. (Psalm 1:1)
1 The fool has said in his heart; “There is no God”…There is no one who does good. (Psalm 14:1)
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)
10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal, But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. (Proverbs 12:10)
Terry Schiavo was denied food and water through a feeding tube by a world who thinks it was being merciful. The same world would find fault with a person who denied food to their dog and starved it to death. It is this type of hypocrisy that results from men having a depraved mind which is a direct result of the denial that there is a God.
12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. (Proverbs 14:12 & 16:25)
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19)
Can you see that this is what is happening today. The wisdom of the wise rulers that we have allowed to govern us is foolishness. If you recognize the foolishness of the society in which you live, then cry out to God to forgive you of your sins. Repent of them. Confess your need of God’s understanding for your life. And receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Heavenly Father, I agree with you that I am a sinner. I need to be made perfect with the perfection offered me by the sacrifice of your son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Please destroy my worldly wisdom and substitute it with your wisdom as talked about in your holy word, the Bible. Please accept me into your kingdom, because I ask it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (Continue to Pray about whatever else God brings to mind.)
