The attacker then shoved pro-life activist Katie Somers, Global News said, before apparently reaching into Somers’ backpack, pulling out an object, and smashing it on the ground.
Somers is with Toronto Against Abortion, which alleged the attacker is Gabriela Skwarko, an assistant at Ryerson’s Social Innovation Office and a member of the Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective, an abortion rights group, Global News reported.
Crow didn’t provide any evidence that Toronto Against Abortion had assaulted members of the Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective, Global News added.
Ryerson University didn’t comment on the Oct. 1 incident, Global News reported.
She told the outlet that members of the Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective have been cited by Ryerson for code of conduct violations because of violence at anti-abortion rallies, including one from March of this year.
