Thousands of Colombians stand up for life, women and the family in Medellin

.- At least 10,000 Colombians took to the streets of Medellin on October 17 for the March for Life, Women and the Family to voice support for the unborn in response to plans to build an abortion clinic in the city with public funds. The number of protestors who came out for the event surpassed even the organizers’ expectations.

Young people, children, the elderly and entire families marched from the Explora Park to Cisneros Square carrying signs and chanting pro-life slogans. At the conclusion of the march, various pro-life leaders addressed the crowd on abortion and adoption, with some women sharing personal testimonies.

Colombian actress Amanda Rosa Perez joined in the march saying, “I support the dignity of women and the family, and I’m here because I want people to recover family and human values…today everything is relative, good is being confused with evil, and we are become enslaved by a world filled with malice.”

Television personality Adriana Eslava emceed the event and said, “I am here because I am concerned about the thousands of women, not only here in the Province of Antioquia, but in all of Colombia, who are being led to believe that abortion is inconsequential.”
