Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mar 27, 2018 / 14:10 pm America/Denver (CNA).
Marking the Day of the Unborn Child on March 25, tens of thousands of Argentinians took to the streets throughout the country to demonstrate for the sanctity of all human life.
According to organizers, approximately 150,000 people marched from Plaza Italia down Sarmiento and Libertador avenues, ending up at the University of Buenos Aires Law School.
The main goal of the march was to reject abortion and to call for comprehensive solutions upholding the dignity of the mother and the unborn child.
Argentina was the first country in Latin America to mark a Day of the Unborn Child, declared Dec. 7, 1998 by then-president Carlos Saul Menem. Much of Latin America now observes the day.
The 2018 March for Life took place simultaneously in 200 cities throughout the South American country in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Catamarca, Chaco, Corrientes, Córdoba, Chubut, Mendoza, Entre Ríos, and others.
