CWN Editor's Note: Legislators in Ontario have approved draconian new legislation that bans pro-life activity at abortion clinics. The bill allows up to a 6-month prison sentence, plus heavy fines, for anyone who shows “disapproval” of abortion within 50 meters of a clinic—a distance that could be increased to 150 meters at the clinic’s request. The legislation passed by a vote of 86 to 1.
