Judge banned pro-life media from exposing abortion witnesses at Mary Wagner’s latest semi-secret Toronto trial
TORONTO, June 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A judge has banned media from identifying abortion center workers who testified in court against pro-life activist Mary Wagner.
Ontario Superior Court Justice Ian Nordheimer granted the temporary ban after a closed “emergency” hearing with the Liberal government’s lawyers Monday.
LifeSiteNews has been fighting the Ontario Crown’s application for a publication ban since last month, but was prevented from arguing the Crown’s emergency motion because of the last-minute notice.
Meanwhile, the lead witness, whose name cannot be identified under the emergency ban, testified in Wagner’s trial Tuesday that she forcibly removed Wagner from the abortion facility even though the police had been called.
