A pro-life priest was assaulted and sprayed with a garden hose by an abortion activist upset that he was showing graphic pictures of babies victimized by abortions.

Father Ron Meyer was the victim. He is the parish priest of Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Cardiff, Ontario and the incident occurred on the last day of “Show the Truth” in Petersborough, Canada. Meyer was participating in a Show the Truth tour event sponsored by a Canadian group that uses graphic abortion images to spread the pro-life message.

“Show the Truth is a pro-life strategy dedicated to showing the truth of abortion to the Canadian public. We are committed to a peaceful and legal means of education through displaying large photographs of children in the womb and abortion,” the group says.

This isn’t the first time a pro-life advocate has been assaulted at one of the group’s events. The organization links to another video on its web site:

Show the Truth is a non-profit organization that travels through Ontario publicly displaying large graphic images of aborted pre-born children to show the horrible truth and reality behind every abortion. In this video, the man who is fighting is pro-choice, and is blaming the pro-lifers for “showing this to his children”, but there are no children in sight. He also fights the pro-lifers for filming him, yet it is completely legal to film someone on public property.
