The Windsor 40 Days for Life vigil takes place in front of a big hospital on a busy street.

Laurie, the local leader, was especially pleased that the youth group from the Windsor-Essex County Right to Life Association committed to an hour of prayer on the eve of the vigil ? and at the same hour throughout the campaign.

She is concerned, though, about the buffer zone proposal.

The truth, she said, is that the only "harassment and intimidation" in front of the hospital comes from abortion supporters who "insult us and drop coat hangers at our feet."

Coat hangers have also been dropped outside the local right to life office.

Laurie said ?it was so great to meet Matt and hear his message of hope and inspiration.?
