OTTAWA, February 21, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A longtime pro-life advocate has become the first person arrested under Ontario’s new “bubble zone” law that outlaws pro-life speech outside abortion centers.

Cyril Winter, 70, was first arrested February 7 and then again two days later in front of the Morgentaler abortion center in Ottawa. He was charged respectively with five and three offenses under Bill 163, or Safe Access to Abortion Services Act.

Winter told LifeSiteNews he was shocked that he had been charged under the new law since the sign he was carrying near the abortion center was not about abortion but about Charter rights.
