Northern Irelands most prominent anti-abortion activist was convicted Wednesday of harassing the director of Belfasts only abortion clinic in the latest chapter of a bitter two-year confrontation.
Bernadette Smyth, leader of the Precious Life group, was convicted on two counts of threatening Dawn Purvis, who runs British family planning service Marie Stopes Belfast branch.
It is the only such clinic on the island of Ireland, where abortion is legal only in extreme cases where a womans life is deemed at risk from her pregnancy.

Bernadette Smyth I applaud you as being both pro life and Irish, but please no threats! That is for them to do. That is how low they stoop. We are not like that.
Now Bernadette, do your time, and go back and fight for life, but no threats!
One would think if a woman were convicted of “making threats” that a reporter would be able to acertain at least the nature if not the exact wording of said threats. Are Irish court cases closed to reporters or is this yet another case of journalistic malpractice?
did she makes threats or were those just lies? we know how the left is.
Don’t know about Republic of Ireland court cases. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom and so is entangled in its particular form of liberalism.
Never mind present-day British jurisprudence.
Is why pro lifers should always carry video cameras. Remember that nutty chick that attacked Created Equal?
Or how about that one I posted just last night?
They don’t just record these in order to show how much the left is out of it, they record it to protect themselves.
I read it through, but couldn’t really see what threats she made. Are these the kind of threats where all that has to be done to prove such is for the ‘victim’ to claim they felt threatened?
