Police are investigating vandalism to an anti-abortion sign outside a Prince Edward Island church.

RCMP say the sign at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Alberton, P.E.I., was vandalized at some point overnight Friday.

The sign, which states "adoption is the loving option," had the word "liar" scrawled across it in black spray paint.

The Mounties are asking anyone with information to contact the RCMP West Prince division.

For decades, Prince Edward Island was the only province in Canada without in-province abortions.

Abortion services have been offered since January at a temporary location in the Prince County Hospital in Summerside.
