On Aug 3 sixty pro-life demonstrators picketed Morgentaler’s clinic while pro-abortion forces met for a rally in Queens Park. The content of the marcher’s signs related as closely as possible to Morgentaler’s own past and the ugly record of abortion clinics in general. The march continued for an hour and a half without great incident, then broke up at the advice of police, who feared a confrontation with approaching pro-abortionists.
Press coverage of the march was encouraging. C.B.C. and Global were denigrating, and chose to ignore the thrust of statements made. City TV, however, and C.P. Press presented excellent summaries of our opposition to Morgentaler and ‘clinics.” For the first time their audiences were given some of “The Facts vs. Morgentaler” which we have tried so hard to make common knowledge.
