She had been found guilty of disobeying a court order at the conclusion of her trial this past Monday by Madam Justice Feroza Bhabha, in relation to her peaceful protest outside the "Morgentaler Clinic" abortion site in Toronto on June 11. That facility is protected by a "bubble zone" law that prohibits pro-life activity within a certain perimeter around the building.
