.- Luis Mauricio Saldaña Ayala, executive secretary of the Mexican Bishops’ Committee on the Laity, announced this week that all dioceses in the country would be promoting a nation-wide pro-life protest on May 25.

Plans for the protest were drawn up during the National Gathering of Diocesan Lay Councils, which took place April 4-6 in the city of Cuernavaca.  “During those days of work and reflection, we focused on issues of national interest, such as the right to life from conception to natural death,” Ayala said.

Leaders at the event decided to organize a pro-life march on May 25 and to request the support of all the Mexican bishops.

The purpose of the event is to “publicly and openly” express support for human life, “from the moment of conception and in all of its stages,” as a living and coherent commitment “by those of us who believe in the marvelous gift of human life,” Ayala stated.
