I support 83-year-old priest charged for pro-life witness!

  • 705

83-year-old Catholic priest Fr. Tony Van Hee has been charged with violating Ontario’s new “bubble zone” law that disallows pro-life speech outside abortion clinics.

The law, known as Bill 163, was passed in 2017 in response to bogus claims that pro-lifers were harassing and intimidating women as they approached abortion centers.

Fr. Van Hee was issued a ticket by police on Wednesday, October 24 while protesting near The Morgentaler Clinic on Bank Street in downtown Ottawa. 

A Canadian Jesuit who has fasted and prayed on Parliament Hill for nearly 30 years to end abortion, Fr. Van Hee could face a fine of up to $5,000 and six months in jail. 

"I will fight it on my own and if they fine me, I will not pay it and go to jail," Fr. Van Hee told LifeSiteNews. "If they jail me, I will fast.”

Fr. Van Hee is scheduled to appear before the court on November 16.
