… if Mary had aborted, we wouldn’t have this nonsense! Despicable.
A Quebec pro-life conference was interrupted last weekend when about a dozen pro-abortion protesters stormed the evangelical church in which it was held and began chanting blasphemous slogans in front of the barricaded doors of the conference hall. Police had to bring in reinforcements to remove the protesters.
“The church door was locked to keep the protesters out, but as one of the conference participant left the building during the morning session, the protesters took advantage of the open door and snuck in,” said Georges Buscemi, president of Quebec Life Coalition, to LifeSiteNews.com.
The pro-abortion protesters stormed the stairwell leading to the conference hall, but were stopped short by the conference doors that had just been barricaded.
“One of our people physically blocked the doors to prevent the protesters from entering,” said Buscemi…
Upon reached the barricaded doors of the conference hall, the protesters clapped and stamped, shouting slogans for 10 minutes before police reinforcements arrived and were able to intervene.
Behind the barricaded doors, conference attendees heard the protesters chanting the equivalent in French of “It’s my body, my choice”.
They also heard chanted a French pro-abortion sing-song against the Virgin Mary: “Ah si Marie avait connu l’avortement, on n’aurait pas tous ces emmerdement.s” (“Oh, If Mary had known about abortion, we wouldn’t have to deal with all this nonsense.”)
… Buscemi said that he was “not surprised” by the protesters. “Can you really expect people who advocate for the death of babies in the womb to be polite and respectful of property?”
“It’s only going to get worse in the future,” he said.

Speaking of the evil that is abortion, news out yesterday indicates that over 70 000 abortions were performed in South Africa during 2011.
CAPE TOWN – Over 70,000 abortions were carried out throughout the country in 2011.
This came to light in a parliamentary reply on Friday.
The number of pregnancy terminations has steadily increased since 2010.
The Free State recorded the highest number of abortions with almost 22,000 being performed in 2011.
Over 12,000 terminations were carried out in the North West.
In Gauteng, at least 11,000 were performed at state health facilities.
The Western Cape’s abortion figures dropped from 12,500 in 2010 to just over 6,900 in 2011.
The Health Department said it could not determine the ages of most women who had abortions in 2011.
Please, let us pray:
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all.
Through Christ our Lord.
