On Saturday, May 20, on a glorious sunny day, thousands gathered together in Rome for the 13th Annual March for Life. The day was filled with enthusiasm and energy as participants processed from Piazza della Repubblica (Termini Station) to Piazza Venezia near the Tiber river chanting “Aborto e eutanasia, la vita portano via!” (Abortion and euthanasia, life takes away!). People from the world over joined in to support those defending the lives of the most vulnerable; coming from the USA, Scotland, and even the Czech Republic. Many Priests, religious and healthcare professionals were also in attendance.
