Canadian abortion activist Jordan Hunt, who was caught on video brutally assaulting a pro-life woman with a roundhouse kick, has been sentenced to 8 months probation after a court hearing last week.
Hunt, the man who was caught on video allegedly kicking a young, female pro-life advocate, was also ordered to stay 100 meters away from future pro-life rallies.
The court also reportedly read a letter from Hunt apologizing for his actions, which read in part: “Everyone should have the right to be without fear when they act on their beliefs. I sincerely regret that I chose such a poor way of expressing myself.”
A video of the incident that went viral last year shows a male abortion activist roundhouse kicking a pro-life woman as she records her conversation with him. The woman was Campaign Life Coalition Youth Coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette.
Initially, Hunt was charged with 8 counts of assault and 7 counts of criminal mischief, including an additional charge for a previous assault. That assault was the other assault Hunt committed against another pro-life advocate. Hunt was released after he was charged on $500 bail and his bail conditions forbade him to be within 500 meters of any “organized pro-life demonstration.”
Nobel Studio 101, a hair studio in Toronto, posted a message on Instagramidentifying the man as Jordan Hunt, one of its former employees. The business said it fired Hunt after seeing him on the now-viral video.
The incident occurred when pro-life advocates gathered at the corner of Bloor and Keele streets in Toronto for the annual Life Chain, a peaceful, prayer-filled event to publicly witness about the tragedy of abortion. A few abortion activists showed up to counter-protest.
Bissonnette was participating in the Life Chain when she filmed Hunt assaulting her.
