But some good news to report. Judges are getting increasingly pissed off at these scofflaws.
After sentencing Gibbons to the max, without reduction for time served, the judge displayed her, um, annoyance.
The judge went on to administer a tongue-lashing to Gibbons at today's hearing.
"She has indicated no remorse to the court," [Madam Justice Feroza] Bhabha said angrily. "She believes in the rightness of her cause ... (but) abortions are legal. Miss Gibbons does not appreciate that it's a legal right."
The judge added a "strong message" needs to be sent to her and others that "there needs to be respect for the law" and she characterized Gibbons as "a martyr for her cause ... It's very likely that she will appear again before this court."
. . .
She said Gibbons's continual appearance before the courts meant she was not amenable to "rehabilitation" and her conduct "must be denounced," with general deterrence emphasized in order to "enhance respect for the law."
Commenters over at ProWomanProLie are wallowing in glurge. Lookit this from 'antigonon'.
It is arguable that Gibbons – along with Mary Wagner, also in jail in Toronto, & for the same reason – may doing the most valuable work on earth. By their willingness voluntarily to absorb a small measure of the injustice inflicted on the innocent, no child dies without this incomparable witness to their value. They are thus – humanly speaking – not utterly abandoned. Hard to see what else in the world stands against injustice as these two do.That would be Mary Wagner, the other Jubilee Jailbird, who was something of a cause célèbre among fetus fetishists last year when another judge let fly.
Quote from LieShite. Note ellipses.
“You’re wrong and your God’s wrong,” [Judge S. Ford Clements] continued. “You have complete contempt … There is a right to (abortion) in this country … You don’t have a right to cause (abortion-seeking women) extra pain and grief the way you do.”
Fox News North and assorted other usual suspects went batshit Christian martyr-crazy and the judge got his wrists slapped for his little tirade.
But at least her attempt to get public funding to take her 'cause' to the Supreme Court was also slapped down.
They continue NOT to get it. Yes, you have the right to freedom of speech. What you do NOT have is the right to the audience of your choice.
[Sorry for all the LieShite links. They are the only ones to cover this crap.]
