Don't Take Away Freedom of Expression and Peaceful Assembly

Background on the Issue
On May 29, 2017, MPP Yasir Naqvi, the previous Attorney General of Ontario, announced that he would table a bill in the fall to transform public sidewalks into “No Free Speech Zones” outside every abortion facility in the province. The bill was passed in October later that year, and has been put into force since February 1, 2018.

These bubble zones within which pro-life speech and expression are banned, prevent pro-lifers from demonstrating or counselling within a certain radius of an abortion facility where children are killed by abortion. That includes hospitals and clinics where abortions are committed, and pharmacies are now able to apply as well. These bubble zones are expected to resemble British Columbia's and Newfoundland and Labrador’s, which have bubble zone laws “not exceeding 50 metres” around abortion facilities.

Local MPP
Profit is the real reason
Dear Member of Provincial Parliament [Recipient's name will be automatically inserted],

The previous Attorney General, Yasir Naqvi, announced that the Liberals would seek to introduce legislation in the fall to turn public sidewalks in front of abortion facilities into “No Free Speech Zones”. In October of 2017, the bill was passed, and by February 1, 2018, the law was put into force.

MPP Naqvi misrepresented what really happens when pro-life counsellors, prayer vigil participants, or even demonstrators witness outside of abortion centres. He portrayed all pro-lifer protesters as “aggressive” and “violent”, which is simply not true.

According to a 2012 study conducted by abortionist, Wendy Norman, of the 74 abortion facilities surveyed, 49 facilities reported no harassment at all, and 21 facilities reported only picketing with signs (without any harassment).

Given that it’s in the self-interest of these private, for-profit abortion businesses to exaggerate and even lie about alleged “harassment”, this report was a revealing admission by the abortion industry itself that the pro-lifers outside their facilities are peaceful.

MPP Naqvi stated during his announcement that the catalyst for this announcement included a meeting with Catherine McNab of Planned Parenthood, an abortion referral service and mouthpiece for the abortion industry. Planned Parenthood would benefit significantly if pro-life protesters were to be forced to move and no longer be allowed to do sidewalk counselling or offer women information to help them choose a non-abortion alternative for their babies.

Therefore, this legislation has the optics of a business tactic by the abortion industry to increase their profits, rather than any sort of concerns for the true best interests of women in crisis pregnancies.
