TORONTO, Ontario, June 3, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After a grueling twenty-eight months of uninterrupted imprisonment for witnessing prayerfully outside a Toronto abortion facility, pro-life prisoner of conscience Linda Gibbons was freed Friday.Unfortunately, Linda is not off the hook yet. She still has to attend court next January. And, nobody can promise that Linda won't be arrested again for the very same reason, for a mere peaceful prayer outside abortion facilities. As long as the ill-famous 1994 injunction remains in force, Linda Gibbons, Mary Wagner and all other committed pro-lifers will live under a constant threat of persecution.
The great-grandmother had been in prison since January 2009 when she was arrested outside the downtown “Scott Clinic,” which is protected by a 1994 court injunction banning pro-life activity within a specified zone.
She has remained behind bars because she steadfastly refuses to accept a bail condition that requires her to stay away from the abortion facilities.

After keeping Linda behind bars for almost 2.5 years, after trying to impose restrictions that would require Linda to stop her pro-life witnessing, the prosecution gave up and Linda was released without any conditions.
