Canadians for Life

Canadians for Life

Canada may have a thoroughly liberal and anti-human political elite, but ordinary Canadians are rallying to the pro-life cause. The 27th National March for Life is set to take place next month, when Canadians of all ages will gather to defend and celebrate life in all its stages. 

On Thursday, May 9, the National March for Life, organized by the pro-life group Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), will draw Canadians from across the country to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, to rally and march for the unborn. 

“It is so important to be present in the nation’s capital to demonstrate that life is sacred from conception to natural death,” event organizer Debbie Duval told LifeSiteNews. 

“As you may know, we hold the march on the Thursday closest to the date in 1969 on which Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and other MPs removed legal protection from the unborn,” she explained. “We march on a Thursday because our elected representatives are still here in Ottawa, instead of their home ridings, and can see us standing up for the dignity of each person.” 

Having been attended by over 5,000 people last year, the National March for Life remains the largest pro-life demonstration in Canada, and an annual highlight for many families, youth groups, and others dedicated to the sanctity of life.  

This year, Duval suggests it’s well worth making the trip into a multi-day affair, as she promises a stellar line-up of speakers at various associated events, including former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson, who inspired the film Unplanned. 

Also, for the first time, the National March for Life will be accompanied by a Pro-Life Expo at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre on Thursday, May 9, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday, May 10, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will get the chance to learn about and receive merchandise from many major pro-life, religious, and media organisations.
