The Montreal Morgentaler Clinic is the first freestanding clinic to offer
safe abortion services in Canada. It was established when Dr. Morgentaler,
as an activist with Canadian humanist associations, began protesting Canada’s
restrictive laws. He continued performing abortions after the law was
changed in 1969 in response to women’s requests for safe and professional
medical abortion care without having to go before a hospital therapeutic
abortion committee. The clinic was situated for many years in a house
in the east end of Montreal where Dr. Morgentaler had established a family
medicine practice in 1955.
In 1995 the clinic moved to its current site. To make an appointment, please call us monday to friday between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Founded in 1968 by Dr. Morgentaler, Canadian pioneer of abortion rights
and provision, the clinic is committed to pursuing the ideal of excellence
that has always been a priority.
