Today, pro-life activist Mary Wagner appeared before Toronto’s Old City Hall Courthouse to hear the ruling in her most recent round of charges including a violation of probation, mischief, and interfering with a business.
Counseling a young woman to receive supportive services for her unborn baby from the Sisters of Life. Though Mary was arrested, the young girl heeded her direction and sought support and is now nearing the end of pregnancy and is married to the baby’s father.
Over 30 supporters followed Wagner into the courtroom today in what promises to be the end of a long journey including closed “emergency” hearings and harsh publication bans.
I ventured to the courthouse and spoke with both Mary Wagner herself as well as notorious pro-life activist Linda Gibbons who, between them, have served over 15 years in jail for breaking what they consider to be unjust laws.
