While pro-aborts celebrated downtown

About 60 pro-lifers braved the sub-zero weather in suburban Coquitlam last night to attend a candlelight prayer vigil to mark the 20th anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada's infamous Morgentaler decision (see my entry from yesterday, below, for more information). The event was peaceful, loving and, ultimately, hopeful. Here's a photo of the event.

Kudos to Coquitlam pro-lifers for their turn out. Nice to see dedicated people who will take a stand for the innocents in the womb.

There was around 100 pro-life people at a candlelight vigil in Chilliwack last night outside the courthouse, despite the cold and falling snow.

I wonder how many celebratory fetus killers were in attendance at the Segal Room on Hastings munching on hors d'ouevres, sipping at the wine bar,and sharing their experience at the open mike?

Story out of Toronto is that the "Huge celebration" of the 20 years by the pro-abortion forces attracted 80 hard core loyalists. This was for an event that even had the name sake of the infamous date in attendance. 15 "honored guests" plus twenty pro-life observers means there were more people in PoCo for the vigil than the event in Toronto. I am reminded of the comment a few years ago by one of the speakers at the Toronto event. Garson Romalis once said, while encouraging medical students at UBC to become abortionists, "Abortion will always be a subteranean thing. Children don't walk around saying 'my daddy is an abortionist'"

Truer words were never spoken. The times they are a changin'. Thank you Bob Dylan.

"Canada supposedly loves the middle way, compromise and the "big tent." But
when it comes to rights issues, other minorities -- First Nations, gays,
people of colour -- mill around sipping tea in cozy comfort under a
protective canvas, while the unborn are always left outside, heaped
forlornly in the rain."

Interesting to note Terry from your post yesterday about the "celebration" by the pro abortionists. A number of Trade Unions are listed as "supporters" of the event.They are "BC Federation of Labour
- BC Teachers' Federation

- Canadian Auto Workers
- Canadian Federation of Students" A full list can be seen at:

The trade union movement is made up of people with different social,moral and religious beliefs, yet the union bosses have the gall to include ALL their members as supporters of this "celebration" of the Morgentaler Decision that opened the doors to unfettered killing of the child in the womb. I believe there needs to be a public inquiry into the trade unions in Canada. For years all kinds of organizations have been getting time and money from the memberships compulsory union dues. There needs to be an accounting. I also believe if any other organizations in Canada were using their memberships time and money without their consent charges would be laid. Unions are certified for collective bargaining this has evolved into collective coercion.
