Principled pro-life activist released from prison but for how long?

Linda Gibbons acquitted after court finds insufficient evidence

her many arrests, this one in 2008.

In my mind Linda Gibbons is synonymous with the word determination. The B.C. Catholic is reporting that the 63-year-old grandmother has been released from prison after yet another arrest for protesting outside an abortion clinic:
Supporters greeted Linda Gibbons outside a Toronto courtroom after judge William R. Wolski of the Ontario Court of Justice ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove Gibbons created a nuisance outside a Morgentaler clinic Dec. 16 in Toronto.
“We (pro-life activists) are there because we want to defend the babies and (we) love and care for women who are wounded by abortion,” Gibbons told LifeSiteNews while enjoying a Tim Horton’s coffee with friends after her release.
