TORONTO, Oct 31 ( – On Wednesday October 25 former pro-abortion activist Merle Terlesky offered an abortion clinic worker outside the Cabbage Town Women’s Clinic a pamphlet for the upcoming Canada Pro-Life 2000 conference. When the worker, known as Gloria, did not take the pamphlet, Terlesky placed it on the ground at her feet. He told LifeSite that she then attempted to kick him in the head, but he blocked the kick with his hand resulting in a sprained thumb. Charges have been laid with Constable Stelles of Toronto’s 52 Division.

When telephoned by the police about the assault, abortuary staff laughed and denied that a worker matching the description given by Terlesky was employed at the abortion mill. However, confirming evidence was shown to police and an investigation and charges are pending.
