Title: Prolife in Canada
Post by: Poche on May 14, 2014, 03:19:48 AM
Several thousand pro-life advocates rallied in Canada’s national capital May 8, seeking an end to abortion and giving witness to the growth of the pro-life movement across the country.

“The March for Life was, once again, a huge success,” Matt Wojciechowski, a spokesman for the Campaign Life Coalition, told CNA. “We had thousands upon thousands of Canadians rallying for life and then marching through downtown Ottawa.”

“The numbers keep growing,” he added. “It was a beautiful day.”

The Campaign Life Coalition organized the event, which has been held for 17 years. Wojciechowski said an estimated 23,000 people attended the Ottawa event, while thousands more rallied in provincial capitals.

The rally drew pro-life movement leaders, pro-life Members of Parliament and pro-life religious leaders, as well as ordinary families, young adults, senior citizens, clergy, and Catholic vowed religious.
