    Uh, Henry Morgentaler is not, as Mrozek claims, “a convicted criminal.” His convictions were reversed. She should get her facts right if she wants to be taken seriously on this issue.

    Also, contrary to her claim, Gibbons wasn’t charged for “walking on a sidewalk.” She was charged for breaching a court-ordered buffer zone around abortion clinic so they wouldn’t harass the patients. They breached those orders and, per the rule of law, were charged.

    Facts.

    You seem to have covered the bases on this story and there is nothing to add except to say the morbid hypocrisy shown by these gate-keepers of political correctness (cultural Marxists) and the consensus media (culture warriors disguised as news media), in condemning a principled protest activist, is so blatant only a child could miss it. It is so obvious that political/social protest is only acceptable if it is for a leftist ideological sacred cows – no dissenting viewpoint can be a principled protester, proving the intolerance and narrow optics of morbidly regressive “progressives”.

    This begs the question; are they so sure of the job they’ve done dumbing down the public that such rank hypocrisy will pass unnoticed – or – are they so sure of their sinecure (or the ignorance of their readers/viewers), that they no longer fear an exodus of viewers/subscribers who may be disgusted by such hypocritical puerile commentary.

    In either eventuality it shows they (consensus media and left elites) have a deep contempt for the public’s cognizance.

    Henry performed abortions in Canada when abortion was still illegal prior to the law being changed in Aug. 1969. The law was amended, allowing for legal abortions if performed in a Hospital, after approval of a review board.
    Henry continued to perform illegal abortions in his clinics till Jan 1988 when the Supreme Court of Canada struck down all legal restrictions. Henry did spend 10 months in jail of an 18 month sentence in 1975.
    So 20 years, or one generation after the 1988 ruling Henry got the order of Canada.

    You are right B.B. Nyborg, he was no longer a “Convicted criminal” when he received the order.
    But I do believe putting these two women in prison for publicly expressing their disapproval of abortion is wrong.
    Was Gibbons walking inside a “buffer zone” really a criminal act?
    Henry was left to break the law for another 13 years while it was figured out how to make abortion legal. He had to wait until the Constitution Act of 1982.
    These Women deserve the Honors Bestowed on them and their unconditional pardon of any guilt.
    This should happen whether you agree with abortion or not, just for the bravery they exhibit for protecting our freedom of speech.
