.- Ten thousand young people met in the Archdiocese of Quito in Ecuador last month and promised to remain chaste until marriage and defend life from conception to natural death.

According to Amparo Medina of the organization, Prolife Action, which organized the event, the thousands of young people attended a concert and listened to testimonies “about the truth regarding the businesses of death, contraception and abortion.”

“The young people heard testimonies from women who were at the doors of abortion clinics but who, with the help of Prolife volunteers, came to understand what an abortion truly is, received help and said yes to life. The shouts of excitement from the young people upon seeing these babies and their mothers was a yes to life,” Medina said.

After the different events, the young people made a promise to live chastely until marriage and to live in marriage faithfully until death. “We will hold these events again in support of the lives of our children and our families for an Ecuador free of the empire of death, contraception and abortion,” Medina stated.
