.- More than 20,000 Brazilians participated in the second annual National March for Life last week in the country’s capital.

The theme for this year’s march was “How Can We Legalize Death if We Love Life,” with thousands of young people, children, and adults marching together as the country’s Supreme Court considers the possibility of legalizing abortion in cases of anencephaly.

“The march takes place every year in order to make leaders and citizens more sensitive so that they don’t accept the legalization of abortion,” said pro-life leader Lenise Garcia.

Jose Miranda de Siqueira, a lawyer with the Pro-Life and Pro-Family Association, said the march is a unique event in terms of pro-life activity in the country.

“This is the most intense, the most legitimate and authentic act in defense of the life of the entire Brazilian population.  It is becoming clearer that the people are against abortion.  Brazilians will never accept death,” he said.
