Some Canadian politicians are disturbed by the effective yet controversial method of displaying pictures of aborted children to convey the truth – that the procedure terminates the life of a child.
"Now, as the media has been reporting here in Toronto, there's a handful of local politicians who want to take action to infringe on the freedom of speech guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as a sort of desperate last measure to prevent the truth from getting to the public," reports Jonathan Van Maren, communications director at the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform (CCBR).
He tells OneNewsNow the city or province has not offered any proposals to restrict the photos.
"That's the difficulty," he continues. "We have one member of provincial Parliament who has written an open letter to the province's attorney general asking for an injunction that would essentially ban pro-life activism. And the attorney general's response to that has been very vague."
CCBR is prepared for a legal challenge, should a law be passed to restrict their freedom of speech.
Meanwhile, several polls indicate that up to 64 percent of people who see the photos of aborted babies are impacted by the campaign enough to shift to life and away from abortion.
