Guayaquil, Ecuador, Jun 24, 2019 / 20:01 pm
Tens of thousands took to the streets of Guayaquil, Ecuador on June 22 in support of life, marriage, conscience protections, and parental rights.
Organizers said more than 100,000 people attended the march, which had as its theme, "Respect the Constitution, the family and life."
The demonstrators demanded the nullification of a ruling by the Constitutional Court of Ecuador which opens the door to redefining marriage. They also voiced their opposition to attempts to legalize abortion, medical marijuana, and sex change operations on minors without parental consent.
The march was organized by several groups defending life and the family, including the Guayaquil Family Network, I'm the One to Educate My Children, Ecuador for the Family, the Young People's Front of Ecuador, Don't Mess with my Children, Lawyers for Life, and the National Front for the Family.
