Ontario Bubble Zones take effect

5 things you should know and do about the Bubble-Zone law effective Feb 1

The totalitarian bubble-zone law is in force as of today, February 1, 2018. Here are five things you should know and do:

1  All eight private abortion facilities in Ontario have an automatic 50 metre bubble-zone . The following activities within these zones will be illegal (see the list here). We encourage you to continue your peaceful pro-life outreach, but when you do, please observe the law and stand outside of the bubble-zone.

2 Unlike the private abortion facilities, hospitals and pharmacies will have to apply for a bubble-zone. Applications for bubble zones opened today, which means it might still take some time before these locations get a bubble-zone. If you are a prayer vigil organizer or you regularly witness to life, contact your local police authorities to discuss the bubble-zone. If possible, meet with the staff sergeant at the abortion facility, hospital, pharmacy etc. where you plan to witness to life and have them show you the exact boundaries of the bubble-zone.

3 Inform your family, friends, and faith communities about this bubble-zone law and encourage them to join you in speaking out against it. A quick and easy way to do this is by contacting your MPP today. Find your elected official by clicking here

4 Don’t be discouraged. Look for new, creative ways to continue getting the pro-life message out there. We must remember that although this law infringes upon our rights and freedoms, the real victims here continue to be the pre-born children, their moms, and families. Women need to hear our message of truth and support. We must not abandon them!

5 Pray. Pray. Pray. Continue to pray for an end to abortion in our nation. Ultimately, this is God’s battle, and He has already won. But in the meantime, let’s get to work!
