Pro-abortion protesters storm church chanting, ‘If Mary had aborted, we wouldn’t have this nonsense’

GRANBY, Quebec, October 12, 2012, ( – A Quebec pro-life conference was interrupted last weekend when about a dozen pro-abortion protesters stormed the evangelical church in which it was held and began chanting blasphemous slogans in front of the barricaded doors of the conference hall. Police had to bring in reinforcements to remove the protesters.

“The church door was locked to keep the protesters out, but as one of the conference participant left the building during the morning session, the protesters took advantage of the open door and snuck in,” said Georges Buscemi, president of Quebec Life Coalition, to

The pro-abortion protesters stormed the stairwell leading to the conference hall, but were stopped short by the conference doors that had just been barricaded.

“One of our people physically blocked the doors to prevent the protesters from entering,” said Buscemi.

The pro-abortion groups provided free transportation to what they told participants would be an “action pacifique théâtrale” (peaceful action drama).

Buscemi said that about 20 young people from the ages of 16 to 25 showed up outside the conference building around 8 a.m. with banners that supported “reproductive choice”.

Upon reached the barricaded doors of the conference hall, the protesters clapped and stamped, shouting slogans for 10 minutes before police reinforcements arrived and were able to intervene.

Behind the barricaded doors, conference attendees heard the protesters chanting the equivalent in French of “It’s my body, my choice”.

They also heard chanted a French pro-abortion sing-song against the Virgin Mary: “Ah si Marie avait connu l’avortement, on n’aurait pas tous ces emmerdement.s” (“Oh, If Mary had known about abortion, we wouldn’t have to deal with all this nonsense.”)

Pastor Stéphane Gagné, who was in the midst of his presentation when the protester stormed the building, expressed outraged over the “commotion and shouting”.

“So much for their ‘peaceful’ demonstration and to Hell with [their notion of] respect… I myself was delivering my lecture when the commotion and shouting prevented me from continuing,” he wrote on a blog.

Once police reinforcements arrived, the protesters were expelled from the church building.

“Although the official report says that the protesters did not resist, the fact is they refused to obey the officers who at first asked them to leave the building,” wrote Gagné.

An unmarked police car was seen by Buscemi to have trailed the protester’s bus as it left the area.

The annual Quebec Life Coalition conference has the goal of “forming citizens to act consistently with the values upon which Quebec was founded”. MP Stephen Woodworth delivered the keynote on his efforts to introduce into Parliament a motion that would have set up a committee to examine the humanity of the unborn child. M-312 failed to pass with only 91 MPs voting for it.

Buscemi said that he became concerned a few days prior to the conference after he saw an “Action Alert” posted online by Le Comité femme du Cégep de Sherbrook (Women’s Committee of Sherbrooke College) and de la faculté des lettres et sciences humaines de l’université de Sherbrooke (Faculty of Humanities at the University of Sherbrooke) that encouraged people to come out and protest what the groups saw as an “anti-choice and homophobic” conference.

Buscemi said that he was “not surprised” by the protesters. “Can you really expect people who advocate for the death of babies in the womb to be polite and respectful of property?”

“It’s only going to get worse in the future,” he said.

I've always felt sorry for Obama with regard to his parents: abandoned by his father almost from birth, and thrown away as an impediment by his mother ten years later. I think he comes by his hollow spot the hard way.

Yes, he was born and raised in miserable circumstances, but he's had plenty of time since then to grow up.

"“Oh, If Mary had known about abortion, we wouldn’t have to deal with all this nonsense.”

And... if the mothers of the kook feminists were pro abortion then they would be worrying about it.

I actually have more respect for these protesters than the “Hey we have nothing against you, we just don’t want you to force your morals on us” crowd. At least these guys are up front with their hate.

Your prayers, while well-intentioned, are unnecessary. Theyrve all obviously chosen already to go to Hell. (What low-life scum!)

The Left: violating people’s rights. If/When they get the power and authority to kill their political enemies, they will mass murder Christians and Jews. They are animals.

There aren't many times the ending of Psalm 139 is applicable to specific situations, but I believe it is in this case:

19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

LOL. What a great picture! Liberal hypocrisy blatantly demonstrated — a “hate-free zone”?

Not often do you see someone so clearly embrace evil (satan) over good (Jesus). The people there that day witnessed it. Christianity and it’s teachings that all persons are made in the image of God and entitled with a right to life is their biggest obstacle. They know it, and it infuriates them. The radical pro-abortion crew supports abortion until right before birth, when the baby slides out of the birth canal and magically transforms into a person.
