(LifeSiteNews) — If you listen to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Joyce Arthur of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, or much of the Canadian media, you might get the impression that abortion activists and abortion clinics need protection from peaceful pro-lifers. That is why progressive politicians from across the country have passed “buffer zones” around abortion clinics, and why Arthur and others have accused pro-lifers of violence simply for pointing out that abortion is an act of violence that ends the life of a human child.
And so I give kudos to CTV Kitchener for actually reporting a story that would ordinarily get ignored in the Canadian media:
A 28-year-old woman from Guelph has been charged with assault with a weapon after she allegedly threw coffee on a pair of anti-abortion protestors downtown. According to police, it happened around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday near Eramosa Road and Woolwich Street.
Police say the two protesters were conducting a silent demonstration when the accused drove by and made an “obscene gesture” toward them. Police say the woman then stopped nearby and threw the contents of a Thermos at them, getting coffee on both protestors. The driver also allegedly said if the protestors were still there in an hour she would return “with bullets.” Police located the woman a short distance away and charged her with two counts of assault with a weapon and two counts of uttering threats. She’s schedule to appear in a Guelph court on May 2.
The reality is that abortion-related violence in Canada flows exclusively one way: perpetrated by abortion supporters against pro-lifers. Indeed, Joyce Arthur herself has noted that the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada does “not oppose violence at protests on moral grounds,” but only for the pragmatic reason that it is ineffective. Indeed, she has responded to examples of pro-life activists — usually young women — being assaulted by insisting that these young women had obviously “provoked” their assailants, an example of victim-blaming at its worst. Canada’s abortion activists are all for women’s rights, as long as those women shut up and get in line.
Pro-life priest and Red Rose Rescuer Fr. Fidelis Moscinski has been found guilty of violating the Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
Yesterday Fr. Fidelis was convicted of the federal crime for a July 2022 “lock and block” rescue he conducted at a Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, New York. The priest is scheduled to be sentenced on April 24 and faces up to six months in federal prison.
Sign the petition to let Fr. Fidelis know you support him and are praying for him.
A Pennsylvania court issued a split ruling against a pro-life Franciscan priest and activist arrested after he entered an abortion clinic to help women choose life.
Father Christopher “Fidelis” Moscinski was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges and not guilty of a felony trespass and a misdemeanor resist, for participating in a Red Rose Rescue at a Planned Parenthood.
Fr. Moscinski entered the clinic on August 27, 2021 with red roses and pro-life literature ready to hand out to women and persuading them to choose life for their children.
Fr. Fidelis has participated in many Red Rose Rescues at abortion centers, and for this has been imprisoned multiple times.
He was also previously arrested for trying to save babies in Ohio in June 2021 and in New Jersey in January 2020.
After the court decision, Fr. Fidelis urged people to “continue keeping all pro-lifers anywhere who are facing charges, especially federal charges, in your prayers, and that God can bring some good out of this unjust persecution.”
Sign this petition today to let Fr. Fidelis know you stand with him and his heroic fight to save unborn lives from abortion.
Fellow pro-life activist and Red Rose Rescuer Will Goodman told LifeSite’s Jim Hale that the court’s ruling to drop one felony and reject another was a “big victory.”But the crackdown on pro-lifers continues!
Just recently the Biden administration targeted Fr. Fidelis and other pro-life activists for Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) violation charges.
This same law was also used by the FBI to raid the home of pro-life Catholic dad Mark Houck last month.
It’s really a disgrace that in America pro-lifers are increasingly being attacked and persecuted simply because they stand for life.
Fr. Fidelis Moscinski needs your prayers and support now more than ever as he continues to fearlessly battle for the unborn.
SIGN THIS PETITION TODAY to tell Fr. Fidelis you stand with him and his courageous fight!

Indeed, when a video of abortion supporter Jordan Hunt roundhouse kicking pro-life activist Mary Claire Bissonnette at Life Chain went viral a couple of years ago, leftist Canadian blogger Nora Loreto insisted that she’d had it coming, tweeting that: “Yes, I am blaming her for provoking someone into attacking her. Correct. I have zero use for these shitty gonzo tactics that make you guys all lose your mind. What these goons want the state to do to women is a million times worse.” In response to a video of a bearded man kicking a young woman in the face, Loreto sided with the man. Because she is a feminist, you understand.
All of this makes sense when you consider the fact that violence is at the very heart of the abortion advocate’s worldview. They believe that in order to live their lives the way they choose, they must have the right to kill children before birth. Violence against human beings they believe to be inconvenient is the premise of their belief system. Pre-born children who are in the way can be taken care of at a clinic surrounded by a bubble zone that ensures no pro-lifer can offer any assistance or alternatives. And young women who do not believe they need the “right” to kill their children to be equal with men can be subject to violence—even male violence—because their voices and views are inconvenient to those who wish to claim that they speak for women when they clearly do not.
That is Canada’s abortion movement.
