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.

Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
