Ryerson University employee Gabby Skwarko assaults pro-life protester Katie Somers

In another case of violence against at a pro-life rally, this time near Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada, a video shows a pro-choice protester throwing items at Katie Somers, including a metal cart.

The woman, Gabby Skwarko, kicked a sign that Toronto Against Abortion (TAA) member Blaise Alleyne was holding and then threw a dolly and shoved his peer Katie Somers. The attacker reached into Somers’ backpack, pulled out what appears to be a metal canteen and thew it down before continuing to shove Somers.

“She chased after me, grabbed my full, stainless steel water bottle and smashed it on the ground, then grabbed my backpack, yanking me back and forth,” Somers said of the attack. “I yelled, ‘Get away from me!’ And she came after me and shoved me. She then moved on to Blaise, bumping him in the chest with hers and saying, ‘Let’s go, are you filming me? Let’s do this!’”

TAA posted a video showing the attack in the middle of discussion between activists.

The enraged woman threw a metal dolly and clamp at the pro-life demonstrators

“The possibility of self-defense was gone for me the moment she used the metal cart as a weapon,” Somers told Life News. “At that point I was terrified of having my teeth broken, being concussed, or worse, and my priority was to get away and to safety.”

Global News identified Skwarko, an assistant at Ryerson’s Social Innovation Office and a member of the pro-abortion rights group Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective.

The Ryerson Reproductive Justice Collective Facebook page appears to have been removed, and its Twitter feed has not been updated in nearly a year.
