Poland embraces pro-life champion Mary Wagner at World Youth Day
August 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Mary Wagner, a Canadian who spent more than four years in jail for defending the unborn, made her second trip to Poland in the past two years and she remains a near-celebrity in the pro-life country.
Wagner was invited by the Polish Right to Life Foundation to visit the country and take part in World Youth Day in July.
Wagner told LifeSiteNews that in the past she has been invited to speak at several schools and parishes in Canada as well. Nonetheless, her fame in her own country is dwarfed by her popularity in Poland. She is highly regarded for her uncompromising views and actions in defense of the unborn. This visit has attracted the attention of the conservative and Catholic media as well as that of the local public television. There is also a Facebook page dedicated to her trip.
Wagner’s primary message during her trip was that the defense of the unborn is the fulfillment of the Christian calling. “We need to see Christ in the unborn,” she explained.
