Campaign Life Coalition is denouncing the measure it says would “criminalize” free speech across the country outside abortion clinics.
“Not just a bubble zone in front of hospitals or abortion mills,” says CLC spokesman Pete Baklinski, “but it could turn the entire country into one giant bubble zone.”
A main reason for the legislation is freedom-crushing politicians who have grown alarmed at the numerous protests outside hospitals and medical clinics to denounce Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's mandatory COVID-19 vaccination orders.
“The wording is so loose,” Baklinski says of the legislation, “they basically say it would be illegal to make a demonstration or protest that, quote, ‘could provoke a state of fear,’ unquote, with the intention of dissuading someone from obtaining or providing health services.”
Hence that is why pro-life activists suspect the bill would apply to protests outside abortion clinics, too.
Prime Minister Trudeau, a far-left politician, has also threatened to remove the charity status of pro-life pregnancy centers which provide options to mothers other than abortion.
