For all the ridiculous frothing from feminists about how pro-lifers want to put women in jail, I’m now aware of two people in jail over the abortion issue, and they are both pro-life. There’s Linda Gibbons, put in jail because of a law which curtails our freedom of movement and speech, which she refused to obey as she peacefully engaged women on the sidewalks in front of abortion clinics.
And now there’s this New Brunswick man, David Little, who has this to say:
I’m prepared to die in jail, if necessary. I can no longer cope with the hypocrisy of praying for life … and paying for death.”
For the record, I’m just in the process of filing my taxes ahead of the deadline. But I do wonder about the place of orchestrated civil disobedience to evil. I’ve always thought I wouldn’t mind going to jail for the right reason. I’m not looking for it, I hasten to add, but I suppose jail has a time and place for the conscientious objectors of the world.
