A vigil turned violent between participants of the candlelight vigil for victims of abortions and the counter protest for vigil for victims of unsafe abortions on the evening of May 11, 2016 at the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights in Ottawa, Ontario.
Several protesters were pepper sprayed by police officers, while others were placed in police vehicles.
Pro-choice counter demonstrators stood with signs, yelled and whistled throughout the event.
The group Campaign Life Coalition organized the vigil for victims of abortions ahead of tomorrow’s March for Life, Canada’s largest annual pro-life event.
