Huge crowds across Latin America took to the streets in recent days to call for the protection of human life from conception to natural death.
On May 5, some 400,000 Colombians in 53 cities across the country turned out for pro-life marches.
Event organizer "United for Life" told ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language sister agency, that the objectives of the march included annulling court rulings in recent years that legalized abortion in some cases and euthanasia.
"The right to life is the first right that every human being has. It cannot be manipulated, nor limited, it can only be recognized and protected by the State and society. To violate this right, or to ignore it even with rulings issued by the courts is the most serious crime," the organization said.
