Controversial anti-abortion campaigner Troy Newman – who reckons women who have abortions, and the doctors who perform them, should be tried as murderers – has had his visa cancelled by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton.

The happy news came from ABC reporter James Glenday, who tweeted a screenshot of an email from the Immigration Department.

Newman was literally pulled off his plane in Denver to be told his visa had been revoked, filming this absolute treasure of a moment:

RED ALERT!!! The Australian government has revoked my visa in midflight. I was pulled off a plane in Denver and told I could not travel to Los Angeles. And then on to Melbourne Australia. I am scheduled to speak on Friday at Right to Life of Australia’s main convention in Melbourne. It is clear that the pro-abortion crowd does not want anyone to hear the truth about Planned Parenthood’s illegal actions. Please pray for me I’m stuck in Denver airport like a man without a country. Please share this video and make it go viral.

He was due to appear at Right To Life Australia events across the country, speaking out against the legislation to both decriminalise abortion, and add a “bubble zone” around abortion clinics that would protect women from vitriol-spouting protesters.

As Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi said: “Mr Newman’s views are extreme, misguided, and downright dangerous.”
