March For Life
On May 8th, 2014 march like
someone’s life depends on it!
Each year at the National March For Life, tens of thousands gather to demand protection for children before and after birth. Last year, an estimated 25,000 pro-lifers assembled on Parliament Hill and marched through downtown Ottawa to inform Canadians that we are the only western nation with no protection for the unborn. Provincial Marches For Life also take place simultaneously across Canada, drawing thousands more.
Since 1969, over 4 million children have been killed by abortion in Canada. In 2014, another 100,000 babies will be put to death, at taxpayer expense, while society turns a blind eye. This event is a great opportunity for people of all ages to join in the civil rights movement of our day. By your presence, you can show lawmakers that the abortion issue is not settled.
The Main Event!
Starting May 8th at 12 Noon
Leading up to the March through the streets, the gathered crowd first hears inspiring addresses by MPs, senators, religious and pro-life leaders.

After speeches, the March begins at Parliament Hill, through downtown Ottawa, and returns again to Parliament. From the Hill, women and men then share personal testimonies about the damage of abortion-choice in their lives.
End Female Gendercide!
The theme for 2014 is yet to be announced. Last year, it focused on the fact that in some countries, abortion is being used to conduct a war on baby girls.
Once thought to be a
problem only in far away lands, the Canadian Medical Association revealed in 2011 that this barbaric practice is happening in Canada, with sex-selective abortion being utilized to target baby girls in the womb. This is the ultimate form of sexist, anti-woman discrimination.
We invite you to attend the annual Rose Dinner at Ottawa’s Hampton Inn for an opportunity to hear notable pro-life speakers (reserve tickets in advance 1-800-730-5358).
