Thousands expected to defend life at national pro-life rally

.- Thousands of Canadians are expected to call on government to defend all human life at the national March for Life May 12. Marchers will walk through Ottawa and gather on Parliament Hill.

The march is only one event in a series of pro-life events that have been scheduled, from May 11 to 13.  Campaign Life organized the three-day annual affair, with the co-operation of other pro-life organizations.

The first event May 11 is an evening mass at St. Theresa’s Parish, followed by a candlelight procession to the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights monument. St. Patrick’s Basilica will hold perpetual adoration overnight, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. 

Archbishop Marcel Gervais is expected to celebrate mass May 12 at St. Patrick’s Basilica at 10 a.m., followed by a march on Parliament Hill, where about 20 pro-life Parliamentarians will greet marchers. Some women will witness to the negative impact abortion has had on their lives.

The annual Rose Dinner that evening will feature guest speakers Marc Cardinal Ouellet, archbishop of Quebec, and Supreme Knight Carl Anderson.

A pro-life youth conference will be held Friday; about 300 young people are expected.
