Paris, France, Jan 22, 2018 / 16:51 pm
Heavy rains did not deter huge crowds from gathering in the streets of Paris for the city’s March for Life on Sunday.
Organizers estimated that about 40,000 people showed up for the march, which had as its theme, “From darkness to light.”
Despite the heavy rain, the marchers completed the entire route. The march lasted about four hours, starting from Porte Dauphine and ending in the Trocadero esplanade, in downtown Paris.
A minute of silence was held during the march for those who have lost their lives to abortion.
