More than 7,500 people took part in the annual March for Life in Berlin on Saturday, under the motto: "No Child is Unsuitable."
The peaceful gathering was organized by the Federal Association for the Right to Life. Participants brandished placards supporting the right to life from conception to natural death.
Five bishops took part in the event: Bishop Rudolf Voderholzer of Regensburg, who also celebrated the closing ecumenical Church service, Berlin's Archbishop Heiner Koch, and Auxiliary Bishops Matthias Heinrich of Berlin, Dominikus Schwaderlapp of Cologne, and Florian Wörner of Augsburg.
Archbishop Koch called on the demonstrators to strive to ensure "that every human being can develop well, from their first moment in the womb to their final breath."
