No this isn't a joke, pro-life activists have been recognized publicly for their good works, and by the Governor General no less. is reporting that Linda Gibbons and Mary Wagner, tireless pro-life activists who fearlessly advocate for the unborn in Toronto, received the Diamond Jubilee Medal this week from the Governor General for their "contribution to Canada:"
The activists are internationally renowned for having been arrested and jailed numerous times for violating abortion clinic ‘bubble zones,’ while peacefully seeking to counsel abortion-bound moms to choose life. In fact, Wagner is currently in jail, after her arrest in August for witnessing at the Woman’s Care Clinic in Toronto.

“This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time,” said Gwen Landolt, national vice-president of REAL Women Canada, to LifeSiteNews (LSN).

“It’s wonderful news that someone has recognized the enormous contribution and dedication of these two women to the cause of life.”

Pro-life Member of Parliament Maurice Vellacott, who nominated the women for the award, told LSN that, “like Martin Luther King and other human rights reformers, Mary [and Linda are] using civil disobedience to further a just cause.”

“Peaceful civil disobedience is an appropriate method when trying to protect defenceless, voiceless human beings in the womb from butchery and death.”
