According to LifeSiteNews, abortion activist Brooke Dietrich has been punished by an Ontario superior court after she attempted to sabotage a “40 Days for Life” campaign with online activities. She filled a vigil spot to make sure it was not filled, and she filled her online shopping cart with “40 Days” merchandise with no intention to purchase them.
The pro-life campaign, which is now taking place in 13 cities across Canada, began March 2 and runs through April 10.
Worst of all, says Matthew Wojciechowski of Campaign Life Coalition, Dietrich published the personal information about “40 Days” participants in an obvious attempt to intimidate them.
“It’s very common, actually,” he tells AFN, “when it comes to pro-life demonstrations and even prayerful protests and events.”
The harassment was stopped by a superior court justice, M.J. Valente, who ordered Dietrich to stop “harassment” and “sabotage” of the pro-life activists involved in the campaign.
The judge’s order also acknowledged the abortion supporter had published the names and email addresses of “40 Days” volunteers and even encouraged others to contact them, too.
“Pro-lifers have always been attacked for the views that we hold,” Wojciechowski says.
