Doctor protested abortion on the streets of Vancouver

Brian Frazer was the first physician to protest at Vancouver's first abortion clinic
Twenty-five years ago this November, Dr. Brian Frazer became the first doctor to take his opposition to abortion to the streets of Vancouver. He stood outside Everywoman's Health Centre with a homemade picket sign stating "doctors against abortion" when Vancouver's first abortion clinic opened on Victoria Drive near 44th Avenue.
