First National March For Life in Brussels

By Hannah Russo | April 29, 2010

Last month in Brussels, European pro-lifers marched through the streets of Europe’s capital in their first National March for Life. The day commemorates the Belgium law “Lallemand-Michielsen,” which has legalized abortion since April 3, 1990.

Europe’s March comes forty years after the first March for Life in Washington, DC where pro-lifers memorialize the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion in the United States.

At the first March in 1974, 20,000 people attended; 35 years later the marchers numbered on Constitution Avenue had ground to over 250,000 strong. I look forward to seeing the same success in the streets of Belgium.
