BREAKING in Canada: Ontario to Ban Pro-lifers from Praying, Ministering and Protesting Outside Abortion Clinics

Campaign Life is urging pro-life advocates to lobby their MPPs to stand up for the freedom of speech of all Ontarians and to not cave to the abortion industry's demands.

"In an increasingly polarized society, it is critical that we protect a woman's right to choose," Attorney General Yasir Naqvi said in a press conference Wednesday before tabling the bill at Queen's Park.

"It is critical those protections be enshrined in law to ensure that they cannot be rolled back," he said.

"This is another attempt by the Wynne government to do the abortion industry's dirty work, by preventing people who care deeply about women and their pre-born children from providing them help and support," she said.

Campaign Life is urging pro-life advocates to lobby their MPPs to stand up for the freedom of speech of all Ontarians and to not cave to the abortion industry's demands.

The bill would also allow other healthcare locations that provide abortion—including the abortion pill—to apply for a bubble zone...
