Hay-Bale and Cross Monument to the Unborn Erected in Southern Alberta

LETHBRIDGE, January 30, 2008 ( -  Directly in front of the Christian Reformed Church in Lethbridge is a huge memorial in honor of the lives of the more than 100,000 unborn babies killed by surgical abortion each year in Canada. On January 28, the twentieth anniversary of the Supreme Court's Morgentaler ruling, which struck down Canada's abortion laws, the display was errected.

Located at the Western edge of the town of Coaldale, the display consists of 100 white crosses - each representing 1000 unborn children whose lives are ended by abortion every year in this country. The crosses are propped up on hay bale, making an impressive and eye-catching display.

The display was put up by Southern Alberta ARPA, a group formed by various Reformed churches in Southern Alberta who promote awareness and action on social and political issues.
