As they have been doing in Corner Brook on Good Friday for more than 30 years, local residents against abortion marched peacefully outside Western Memorial Regional Hospital.

Nearly 40 people took part in an anti-abortion rally outside Western Memorial Regional Hospital on Good Friday morning.

The protest is an annual event that has taken place outside the hospital in Corner Brook on the Easter holiday weekend for more than three decades.

Most abortions in Newfoundland and Labrador are performed at the St. John’s Morgentaler Clinic, but those participating in the rally in Corner Brook believe it is important to continue to raise awareness of their belief that a pregnancy should not be aborted unless there is a medical emergency.

    Congratulations on your Pro-life rally on Good Friday and for continuing to carry out this witness for the right to life for all human beings. Standing up publicly for the truth when it is unpopular is hard work. Overcoming lies and aversion to the truth is an uphill battle. We have to continue to be a vital voice for and servant of life and love to help overcome the evil of abortion.

    After 30 years, I find it hard to believe that this Good Friday brought out only 40 anti-abortinists. I could have been one more but the weather was miserable, and I didn't want to take the chance of suffering from a cold. But hats off to those who did attend....A good cause.
