Campaigners in Blackburn pro-life demo
1:11pm Monday 16th July 2012 in Blackburn
A PEACEFUL pro-life demonstration took place in Blackburn on Saturday.
Campaigners carrying placards said they held the event to raise public awareness of the issue of abortion.
The event outside Blackburn Town Hall also included speakers, covering key aspects of the abortion debate.
There was also a mobile exhibition showing the pictures of life inside mother’s womb at early stage of development.
A spokesman for the organisers said: “We understand that this issue is perhaps one of the most controversial and emotional ones out of all the issues from the public debates, but in our opinion it touches matters that are so fundamental to our existence, that avoidance of them is no way forward, especially when consensus has not been reached.”
