March 7, 2018 (ARPA Canada) A new law took effect in Ontario last month. It is now an offence, punishable by punitive fines and prison, to "attempt to advise or persuade" someone to refrain from having an abortion, or to "attempt to inform a person concerning issues related to abortion services", or to "attempt to perform an act of disapproval [of abortion]" in any way, if the attempt is made within 50m (or up to 150m) of an abortion clinic. 'Access zones' can also be created around hospitals and pharmacies by regulation, up to 150m in every direction.
Informing? Persuading? Disapproving? Imagine, "You're under arrest for attempted persuasion..." It is also an offence to "persistently request", by any means and in any place, that an Ontario abortion provider "refrain from providing abortion services", no matter how peaceful or polite your requests.
The consequence of this law's viewpoint discrimination was on stark display in Ottawa last week. ARPA is two blocks from the Morgentaler Clinic, so I ventured out see what might be happening on the first day the law came into effect. Just across the street from the Clinic, people were taking signs out of a bag. I thought it might be a bold group of pro-lifers. In fact, it was the opposite. Two police officers walked over and checked out their signs. Evidently, they were satisfied that the signs were sufficiently pro-abortion, since these demonstrators were allowed to stay. "I do not regret my abortion", one woman's sign said. Erase the word 'not' and she could be arrested.
You'll find no offence like these in Canadian law. They exist only in relation to abortion. The closest thing I could think of are laws against obscenity or hate crimes, since they are prohibitions on certain kinds of communication (read.......

Abortion is the sacrament of the Left.
Why not repeal all laws outlawing murder too?
Fathers have a right to tell mothers to not kill the couple’s preborn baby daughters and preborn baby sons.
No freedom of speech in Canada, it should be a basic human right.
You will note that all the third world countries of the world abhor the Bill of Rights and are proud that they do not have them.
I agree, free speech should be a fundamental human right, but the statists who run Europe and the UN sure don't see it that way. Heck, we have a hard time maintaining free speech here and we do have the First Amendment.
They are worshiping the god of Molech. A blood sacrifice is required for their special time in Hell.
Can a wife send her husband to jail for trying to persuade her to have their baby?
“”It became necessary to destroy free speech in order to save it.”
They have already taken “hate speech” (as in speech that upsets liberals) to levels of absurdity. That’s why Americans have to be so careful about freedom-zapping leftist ploys like “Net Neutrality” and the “Fairness Doctrine” which are actually attempts to censor conservative speech under the guise of “fairness”.
The phony liberals/marxists here in the U.S. wouldn’t stand a chance in Canada.
Not ONE has moved.
Canada has no free speech protection.
We here are losing ours but not this blatantly.
She can send him to jail for being too loud at her.
She can lie and call 911 and send him to jail.
So the answer to your question is, of course, yes.
Soviet Canuckistan. Need I say more?
Is it also a crime to attempt to persuade one to have an abortion? It seems it should work both ways if they are gonna restrict “persuasive” speech.
Now it seems to have gone over to a kind of Stalinism, and not a "soft Stalinism" either: they can take away your liberty, destroy your livelihood, confiscate your children (literally), fine, imprison, or bankrupt you for exercising your natural right to have an audible opinion, if the Powers That Be disagree.
They'll be killing dissenters soon. But politely.
Beat me to it. The U.S. Constitution recognizes rights that already exist. In Canada, rights are confiscated by the government and then reissued to favored groups as privileges.
Will never visit that place again. Hope Muslim monkeys take over their Parliament building.
Let that sink in. How did we get this way? How was womankind socially reprogramed and re-engineered to kill her unborn with this murder STATE sanctioned!? Infantiside has killed more than wars. Abortion KILLS the future robbing society of people. It's unbelievable but is the weapon of the left that is better than a nuclear weapon.
