Original Abortion Caravan activist horrified at pro-life tour

"The New Abortion Caravan" is making it's way across the country, driving two cargo trucks carrying anti-abortion messages and bearing graphic images of aborted fetuses.

The Canadian Centre for Bio-ethical Reform says the point is to shock people into realizing the disturbing truth about abortions.

The group started in Vancouver and will travel across the country, ending in Ottawa.

And if their journey sounds familiar -- that's because it is.

Their campaign is modeled after the ORIGINAL abortion caravan, the first national feminist protest which toured Canada in 1970.
A protest with the exact opposite position on abortion.

Margo Dunn was on the original abortion caravan, and told Daybreak host Chris Walker she's horrified by the methods used by the centre to further its cause.
