Campaigners who're against abortion are going to protest outside Glasgow's superhospital later.

Members of the 40 Days For Life group will hold a vigil as women head in to for appointments.

They'll be demonstrating at the hospital for the whole of Lent.

Glasgow Women's Aid has told HEART the move is "disgusting".

Organisers say their event will be peaceful.

A spokesperson from 40 Days For Life said: "40 Days for Life is a locally organised community initiative, encouraging Christians to pray peacefully, prayerfully and legally for an end to abortion in the local community. Part of our campaign is to conduct community outreach: take a positive, upbeat pro-life message to all parts of the community."

"The campaign is Glasgow is the first ever 40 Days for Life campaign in Scotland. Over the last 5 years, nearly 25 locations have participated in local 40 Days for Life campaigns all over the United Kingdom, and hundreds upon hundreds of women have been helped thanks to this initiative in a loving, compassionate and non-judgmental way."

"There is a strong legal tradition of free speech in the United Kingdom. 40 Days for Life organise peaceful, prayerful and legal prayer vigils in the places where abortions happen in the local community. "
