Saskatchewan (Campaign Life Coalition) – A young pregnant woman in Saskatchewan decided not to abort her baby after seeing a pro-life advocate witnessing to life outside of a provincial hospital where abortions are committed.

Barney Sullivan, 71, told Campaign Life Coalition that he was standing outside of Saskatoon City Hospital, where abortions are regularly committed, when a young woman who looked to be in her twenties approached him, wanting to speak with him.

At the time, Sullivan was standing just outside the hospital entrance with a large pro-life sign which read: “Unborn babies matter.”

“I was just standing there by myself. And this lady wanted to talk to me. And usually, it’s pretty negative,” said Sullivan, who, for the past two years, has stood outside the hospital entrance with his pro-life signs every day for over an hour, quietly praying.

“And she said, ‘Well, I saw your sign and I’m keeping my baby.’”

The woman, according to Sullivan, said that she was scheduled to have an abortion, but when she saw the man with his pro-life message standing just outside of the hospital, she interpreted it as a sign that she needed to make a different choice.

“She says, ‘You know, I was going in for an abortion, but,’ she said, ‘this is a sign to me that I’ve got to keep my baby’,” Sullivan related about his conversation with the woman.

Sullivan said that he was not on hospital property when the encounter took place last month but standing on a public sidewalk at the corner of the turnoff into the hospital, well within 50 metres of hospital property.

Sullivan believes his location of pro-life witnessing was decisive in saving the life of this woman’s preborn child.

Earlier this month, the government of Scott Moe put forward a bill that would impose speech-muzzling bubble zones across the province. While Bill 48, The Public Health (Safe Access to Hospitals) Amendment Act, 2021, aims at keeping vaccine mandate protestors 50 metres away from hospital property, the proposed legislation would also criminalize peaceful pro-life witnessing.
