Linda Gibbons protests inside the bubble zones outside Toronto abortion clinics. She paces quietly and hands out pamphlets. For this she has spent many years in jail, and on Tuesday this past week, she was arrested again. This is her life’s work and I’m grateful to her for it.
In moments, I wonder what would happen if more of us joined her in a concerted effort with media advisories going out ahead of time. Ie. many young women being thrown in prison might cause more of a stir than one elderly one, who to be frank, we’ve gotten used to. It’s more a question of when Linda Gibbons is going back to jail, not if. I muse about this kind of idea regularly, if you’d like to know about the inner workings of my mind.
Then I muse about building a house with space for young girls who are unexpectedly pregnant to live in, but now I’m digressing.by
