With restrictions still in place to control the transmission of the coronavirus, Rome's annual pro-life march will take place online this year.
Now an internet-based event, the Italian national March for Life is being called "Connected for Life," and will take place Saturday, May 23 at 2:30-3:30 p.m. Rome time.
"This year we cannot take to the streets and squares but we still want to make our voices heard to denounce the culture of death, which, also in a difficult situation like the one we are living, is unhesitating in moving ahead, and indeed promoting the crime of abortion," Virginia Coda Nunziante, president of the Italian March for Life, said in a press release.
The 2020 edition would have been the 10th anniversary of the "Marcia Per La Vita" in Rome, which was started after Coda Nunziante was inspired by the United States' March for Life in Washington, D.C.
