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 conferenceWednesdaybefore tabling the bill at Queen's Park.

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...
