.- More than 100 organizations from Spain and around the world are set to participate in the International March for Life that will take place in the country next month.

In Madrid and 60 other Spanish cities, the groups will convene on Oct. 7 to urge the government of Spain to repeal the country's law allowing abortion and to pass a “zero abortions” law.

Organizers have titled the march, “For the Right to Life, Zero Abortions,” which will coincide with the International Day Against the Death Penalty. It will begin at 12 noon in cities across Spain and at Spanish embassies and consulates around the world.  

The list of organizations participating in the march include the Population Research Institute, the U.S.-based Focus on the Family and Crossroads, Australia's Endeavour Forum, Real Women of Canada, Alive to the World UK, Russia's Demographic Research Institute, the Novae Terrae Foundation, World Congress of Families and the Pro Europa Christiana Federation.

Spanish group Right to Life announced that when the reform of the law comes up for debate and vote in the Spanish Congress this fall, it would also present a petition signed by one million voters supporting “Zero Abortions,” as well as a new law that protects the right to life and supports mothers.
