The first ever pan-European March for Life was held in Brussels on Sunday, 28th March. The event was organised by university students from Belgium who collaborated with pro-life advocates and organisations throughout Europe.
The March was addressed by pro-life representatives from around Europe and the world. According to the official website of the organisers the idea of the March was born out of a “desire to express our solidarity with and compassion for those women who have been forced to abort. We also want to lend our voice to the unborn children that have been sacrificed”
As with the March For Life in Washington DC in January last, looking at the photos of this event the youthfulness and for that matter cheerfulness of the participants is striking. The March started at the Royal Palace and participants marched to the Palais de Justice.
No doubt this event will go from strength to strength and plans are already underway for next years March For Life which is scheduled for March 27th, 2011.
