Mother of 13 Fined $5,000 For Trying to Save Baby From Abortion Outside Local Abortion Clinic

An Australian mother was slapped with a huge fine Wednesday simply for trying to give a pamphlet to a couple going into a Melbourne abortion facility.

An Australian Magistrate’s Court found Kathy Clubb guilty of prohibited behavior within a “safe access zone” and fined her $5,000 for the August 2016 incident, BuzzFeed News reports.

The buffer zone prohibits pro-lifers from sidewalk counseling within 150 meters of an abortion facility in the state of Victoria.

“I’ve been fined $5,000 for attempting to save a baby from being killed and for trying to save its parents from a lifetime of regret,” Clubb wrote on her blog.

A mother of 13 children and a pro-life advocate, Clubb was arrested in August 2016 after she violated the buffer zone law by offering materials to a couple outside the East Melbourne Fertility Control Clinic, an abortion facility, according to the report.

The pro-life advocacy and legal groups Australian Christian Lobby and Human Rights Law Alliance are supporting her case. On Thursday, Clubb’s lawyers said they will consider appealing the conviction.
