A pro-choice man has been arrested after throwing paint on pro-life signs being held by members of Canada’s ‘Show the Truth’ pro-life organization.
About 50 pro-lifers held signs containing the images of abortion victims in downtown Kingston earlier this week when they were met by pro-choice activists.
A local media outlet reported what happened next:
- Confrontations began between the two groups and ended when a male demonstrator threw paint at members of the ‘Show the Truth’ group, vandalizing their signs.
The male was then arrested by Kingston Police.
Shortly after the confrontation, demonstrators from both sides took to various street corners and continued their peaceful displays.
Members of the pro-life group defended the use of the graphic signs, “We feel that the best way to show people what abortion really is – is to show what it looks like,” said Isaac Longworth who attended the demonstration.
“We have the right to show dismembered, executed children,” said Rosemary Connell, a co-ordinator for Show the Truth after the assault.
“That’s the good thing about Canada. You can show the truth on the sidewalk.
“This is private property, and you can’t destroy someone else’s private property, ” she stated.
