Members of several Southland churches congregated on the lawn outside Southland Hospital’s abortion clinic in a silent vigil to mark its first anniversary today.
Led by Father Vaughan Leslie, 25 people silently carried signs saying “I’m a child, not a choice”.
Father Vaughan said the group congregates every Thursday from 11am until noon to highlight their beliefs.
At the driveway to the hospital today there were three people carrying signs supporting the clinic and a woman’s right to choose.
