WHY WE MARCH IN 2019
50 years of abortion on demand in Canada
This 22nd National March for Life marks 50 years of abortion on demand in Canada. We march in memory of the 4 million + children killed before birth by abortion since 1969, the year former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau passed an omnibus bill decriminalizing abortion.
This year, we march in our nation’s capital to urge our parliamentarians to put an end to this 50-year-long assault on human life.
We march because we cannot look the other way and allow this injustice to continue any longer.
We march for a law that will protect each and every human being from the time of conception until natural death.
We march for a right to life for all.
To show that the pro-life vote matters
The National March for Life this year precedes a crucial federal election in which the stakes are at an all-time high.
We march to encourage our pro-life lawmakers, to embolden them, and to show them that we will support them.
We march to send a strong message to MPs seeking re-election and new candidates, that our vote matters, and on election day, we will not vote for them if they support abortion or are unwilling to change the status quo of abortion on demand.
We will march and we will proclaim: “We vote pro-life!”
