Thousands of pro-life Canadians joined the March for Life in Ottawa on Friday, mourning the 50th anniversary of the law that legalised abortion at all stages of pregnancy.
Protesters marched through the capital and gathered in front of the Canadian parliament with signs in both French and English bearing pro-life slogans.
Canada is one of only a few nations with no legal restrictions on abortion... Еще.
The Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1969 legalised abortion at all stages of pregnancy in Canada as long as a committee of doctors deemed it necessary for the mother's physical and mental well-being.
In 1988, Canada's supreme court struck down the law, removing all legal framework regulating abortions in the country. Access to abortions now varies between provinces.
