Rome, Italy, May 20, 2017 / 10:15 am
Held this year on May 20, Rome's seventh annual March for Life was a chance for pro-life advocates of any faith to share their convictions about the sanctity of life and how it is founded in a love of life and family.
"It is the seventh edition of the March and as in the past years, we expect thousands of people to come and create a joyful atmosphere," Alessandro Elia, one of the event's organizers, told CNA ahead of Saturday's event.
"In fact, we are against abortion because we love life and we love the family, a natural institution which is fundamental for every human society."
This year was Rome's sixth – and Italy's seventh – annual March for Life. The event's tagline was "For life without compromise."
