In Edmonton, participants kept peaceful vigil 12 hours a day at the Women’s Health Options abortion clinic.Notice the Orwellian name - abortion mill that slaughters babies and traumatizes mothers is called "women's health options".

“It’s made an impact on the area. A woman from around here didn’t know what this was. She thought it was just a women’s clinic. She didn’t know abortions were done here,” said MacLellan.
Police were called after some of the people keeping vigil spoke to the patients entering the clinic, which is not allowed.
“We aren’t supposed to talk to the women who are going in there at all. They have a bubble zone. We are not allowed on the other side of the street,” said MacLellan, praying outside of the Back Porch, directly across the street.
That clinic staff are worried about the pro-life vigil in itself shows that the event had an impact, she said. ”When they go in there, they always turn and look at us. The staff always checks to see how many people are here.”
