A pro-choice woman destroys the sign of an anti-abortion protester outside the Smith Jersey Women’s Center abortion clinic.

The woman approached the pro-lifers with another pro-choice friend.

The protesters were carrying “Babies are Murdered Here” signs, which apparently upset the duo.

As the pair approaches, one of the pro-choicers tells them, “You guys have major F’ing issues.”

The pair blurt out a lot of expletives….when this pro-choicer walks up, and takes one of the group’s signs.

American activist Peter LaBarbera was arrested Monday and charged with mischief . He was at the University of Regina. (CBC)

Peter LaBarbera was arrested on the University of Regina campus Monday, for displaying pro-life and anti-homosexual materials the university described as “graphic” and against the institution’s policy.

LaBarbera was invited to Weyburn to speak at a Saskatchewan Pro-life Association convention Saturday. He then decided to hold demonstrations at the province’s two universities. LaBarbera opposes same-sex marriage, gay adoption and abortion, but said he is just fighting for his right to free speech.

I’m a Christian. I can’t hate people. We all struggle with sin – that just doesn’t happen to be my sin, but the idea that you can’t have an open debate on homosexuality on a college campus and that some speech code is brought in to kick people off because they have a viewpoint that most students probably haven’t heard, seems to me to be pretty undemocratic,” he said.

LaBarbera, who is with a group called Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, and Bill Whatcott were distributing what officials call “anti-gay literature” on the campus.

Before their arrival, the university issued a news release saying the pair would be monitored to ensure they did not engage in any activity that would promote hatred.

At one point, with news cameras rolling, an unidentified university official approached Whatcott, 46, and LaBarbera, 51, and asked them to leave. During that encounter, Whatcott said he had attempted to get permission to set up an information table and, since he was denied, proceeded to set up a table anyway.

“I’m not leaving,” Whatcott told the official, “You guys are intolerant and should be ashamed of yourselves for shutting down our message without even considering it.”

We have a charter right to speak; the Court of Queen’s Bench ruled in our favor and I’m not leaving,” countered Whatcott.

A short while later, several Regina police officers arrived and Whatcott and LaBarbera were handcuffed and taken off campus.

University officials defended their decision to call police.

According to the Global News, the university said anyone is welcome on campus, as long as they uphold a respectful workplace policy and said graphic abortion posters Whatcott and LaBarbera displayed contravened this policy. So after two hours – and being asked to leave multiple times, the men were removed in handcuffs.

Prior to arriving in Canada, Labarbare was detained by the Government. He explains on Bryan Fischer’s Focal Point radio show:

UK’s Thought bullies strike to fire religious pro-lifer

From the UK Daily Mail:
Catholic NHS worker ‘faces sack’ after giving colleague booklet warning of abortion risks
By Vanessa Allen and Paul Bentley
22nd December 2010

A Roman Catholic health worker is facing the sack after she gave a colleague a booklet about the potential dangers of abortion.

Margaret Forrester, 39, feels she was bullied and ‘treated like a criminal’ after she handed the pro-life leaflet to a family planning worker at an NHS centre.
It warned of the physical and psychological problems suffered by five women after terminating pregnancies.

Miss Forrester said she offered the booklet during a private conversation with a colleague, because she felt the NHS did not give enough information about potential risks associated with abortion.

Uncertain future: NHS worker Margaret Forrester fears she could lose her job after a disciplinary hearing

But her NHS employers have launched disciplinary action against her and she fears she could lose her job over the row.

Miss Forrester has been accused of ‘distributing materials some people may find offensive’, and attended an internal hearing yesterday.

She faces an uncertain Christmas because she will not be told the outcome until January.

The case is the latest example of Christians who have faced disciplinary action from employers after expressing religious views.

Miss Forrester said: ‘My pro-life views do come from my Christian belief, but a lot of people have a religion. It’s not a criminal offence.

‘A religious opinion is expressed in the booklet, so therefore it’s not entirely neutral, but I believe that women considering abortion should have a full range of information.

‘It’s in the patient’s best interest. But I didn’t give the booklet to a patient, I gave it to a colleague in an informal conversation.’

Miss Forrester has worked for the NHS for six years and is a mental health worker at the Central North West London Mental Health Trust, based in Camden, North London.

In early November she gave two copies of the booklet ‘Forsaken – Women From Taunton Talk About Abortion’ to a female colleague, as part of a discussion about information offered to patients.

NHS advice states that ‘repeated abortions’ can cause damage to the womb, which can result in fertility problems.

Its website says: ‘Research suggests that having an abortion does not lead to long-term emotional or psychological problems.

‘However, some women can feel sad or guilty after an abortion, and post-abortion counselling services are widely available.’

Miss Forrester’s case is backed by the Christian Legal Centre, whose director Andrea Minichiello Williams (corr) said it was an example of public sector ‘intolerance’ towards religious belief.
She said: ‘It is staggering that to voice an opinion to colleagues and pass out a booklet could cost you your job.

‘The level of intolerance in the public sphere, particularly in public sector employment, is deeply worrying and suggests we are living in a society that is less and less free.’

Earlier this year, nurse Shirley Chaplin, 54, lost an employment tribunal over her right to wear a crucifix at work.

Lilian Ladele (corr), a registrar with Islington Council in North London, lost a case at the Appeal Court in which she argued she was entitled to refuse to conduct gay civil partnership ceremonies because they ran against her beliefs. She has since left her job.

A spokeswoman from the NHS trust said she could not comment on internal disciplinary cases.
