Staggering hypocrisy

In today's NP:

No justice

Re: Court Rules Against Abortion Protester, June 9.

Linda Gibbons has been in and out of prison for more than a decade for repeatedly standing within the proscribed 150-metre bubble zone around Toronto abortion clinics. The 63-year-old diminutive grandmother protests quietly holding a sign that says: “Why, mom, when I have so much love to give?” Time after time she is arrested for breaking the law though she is hurting no one. The liberal intelligentsia has labelled her dangerous and evil.

Meanwhile, Quebec students continue to strike, wreaking havoc upon society at many levels, yet Canadian unions and the United Church of Canada give them their support.

One group of protesters, creating chaos and hurting a whole province in many ways, is strongly supported by the unions and the United Church; a lone protester, inconveniencing no one, is thrown under a bus. The hypocrisy is staggering.

What she is trying to do is great, being the Rosa Parks of the abortion world. However, the fact is that she is consistently breaking the law by doing her protesting within those proscribed 150 meters, which is the government must punish her with prison by the laws in their land if she gets reported. Perhaps, like Rosa Parks, this consistent break in the law is what will help push us closer to getting rid of this abominable act. However, as for me I believe it to be a commandment to follow the laws of land (as long as they are in tune with God's). I'm sure there are many places Linda Gibbons can do her peaceful protest.
