Hey there, time traveller!

In her June 22 feature, War of the womb, Lindor Reynolds makes it seem like there is minimal support for the pro-life movement. I have participated in many peaceful demonstrations, such as the Life Hike, the March for Life, the Life Chain and 40 Days for Life, and stood outside Health Sciences Centre with signs saying "Women do regret abortion" and "Adoption, the loving option" and I've had very little negative reaction from people.
I have rarely been shown the finger or yelled at. Reactions from people walking or driving by have for the most part been positive -- from smiles and thumbs up to waves and honks. People have thanked us for being there.
Support is growing, and as we learn more about fetal development, abortion is becoming more of a human rights issue.
