Pro-abortion male feminist Jordan Hunt made headlines in October after he was captured on video roundhouse kicking a pro-life woman who was peacefully demonstrating at a gathering in Canada. For his misdeeds, which include harassment and assault of other pro-lifers, Hunt has been sentenced to eight months probation and ordered to stay 100 meters away from pro-life rallies, LifeNews reported Monday.
Hunt told the court he was sorry for his actions, reading from an apology letter. “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,” he said, the outlet reported.
The victim in Hunt’s attack was identifiied as Marie-Claire Bissonnette, the youth coordinator for Canada’s pro-life group Campaign Life Coalition.
“I hope this unfortunate experience can remind the public of the violent deaths pre-born babies experience from abortion,” Bissonnette told Human Defense Initiative, following the attack. “What this man did was an act of assault and I intend on pressing charges. But he’s also loved by the Father, so please pray for him.”
As previously reported by The Daily Wire, Hunt also faced repercussions at work; the hairstylist was quickly let go from his job at Noble Studio 101 Hair Studio.
“It has been brought to our attention that Jordan has been caught on camera assaulting an innocent bystander at a pro life rally. We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go. We believe that everyone has a right to an opinion and the right to voice their opinion without fear of physical violence,” the studio wrote in an Instagram post.
As noted by LifeNews, Hunt was initially charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of criminal mischief. The abortion activist “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.'”
Writing at LifeSiteNews, Bissonnette recalled Hunt defacing two of the pro-life group’s signs. “After I warned people to shield their signs, he then proceeded to run up behind five of the participants (including a ten-year-old girl) and scribble with his markers on their backs, ruining their clothing,” she said.
“After these acts of vandalism, he approached the pro-abortion demonstrator, evidently in order to seek her approval, which she appeared to deny him by discouraging his tactics,” Bissonnette continued. “At this point I took out my cell phone and began to record him, telling him that what he did was destruction of private property and it was against the law.” Hunt then brought up a hypothetical of a 16-year-old girl becoming pregnant after a rape. When the pro-life woman maintained that the baby in that hard situation would still be innocent, he viciously assaulted her.
