A silent, peaceful pro-life demonstration is going on outside B.C. Women's Hospital. Every day during Lent, a few volunteers stand outdoors with rosaries and pray for unborn children, their mothers, and victims of abortion.

This weekend, a larger group of pro-lifers gathered to hear speeches from National Campus Life Network's Anastasia Pearse and SFU Lifeline's Emily Ryznar as the vigil crossed the halfway mark.

40 Days for Life
runs until March 20.
