Both sides of the abortion debate were represented for the first time outside Thames Hospital on Friday morning.

A pro-choice group demonstrated last week in opposition to Voice for Life demonstrators, who have staged protests on the corner of Mary and Mackay Streets for many years.

On Friday, both groups demonstrated on opposing street corners.

Both sides vow to demonstrate every Friday morning, which is when women enter the hospital for their abortions.
