Thousands call for a culture of life in France

.- About 10,000 people marched through the streets of Paris Sunday, calling for an end to abortion and the creation of a culture of life in France. A large number of young people participated, as well as two German delegations, one Spanish delegation and one group of Belgium youth. Some marchers. The presence of the international community signaled the importance of this pro-life for the entire European community.

Demonstrators chanted slogans, “Yes to life” and “Give life rights,” and tried to raise awareness about the painful consequences of abortion, and to propose alternatives to abortion. About six million abortions were performed in the country since abortion was legalized 31 years ago.

The march was organized by a collective called “30 ans ça suffit ! (Thirty years is enough!) The first march last year drew 15,000 people.

One of the organizers launched an appeal to pro-lifers and the general public to continue to mobilize in favor of life and to resist the culture of death throughout 2006. Organizers are calling for even greater participation at the third annual march Jan. 21, 2007, as it will precede the spring elections.
