.- The Federation of Organizations in the Defense of Life is organizing a “Great March for the Defense of Life” on Sunday, January 21st, in France.  This year’s march will mark the third time it has been held in Paris.

The call to march, which has been extended to pro-life organizations in Spain, Belgium, Germany and Italy, emphasized that “here in France, 220,000 children are murdered each year through abortion.  And more than 7 million people have been killed since the legalization of abortion in the country.”

“Thousands of people participated in the great march for life in 2005 and 2006.  This year its going to be even more numerous!” the invitation states.

According to organizers of the march, abortion in France “has consequences for demographic aging, the closing of maternity homes and schools and the problem of pensions for retirees.”  It also leads to the breakdown of the family and the devaluing of the human person.

The march, which will coincide with the annual March For Life in the United States, has special significance this year, as France will elect a new president in April.  “Our march is intended to be a unique occasion for showing the strength of the pro-life electorate, so that respect for life is taken into account during the electoral campaign,” organizers said.
