Jailed for talking inside abortion clinic, Canadian woman continues pro-life work in prison

Catholic World News - October 04, 2011

A young Canadian woman, Mary Wagner, has spent months in jail for the "crime" of speaking to women in abortion clinics, encouraging them to let their babies live.

Early this year Wagner was told that she could be free pending her trial, if she would agree not to go near abortion clinics. She refused. Acquitted, she was released--and then arrested again for the same offense.
