Marchers to Mourn 1.4 Million Babies Killed by Abortion on 20th Anniversary of SA Abortion Law


On 1 February 1997 abortion-on-demand was legalised in South Africa. By 1 February 2017 an estimated one million, four hundred thousand (1 400 000) babies in South Africa have lost their lives through abortion - legally - with taxpayers’ money.

Vice President Mike Pence Addresses March for Life in Washington DC

The 20th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion-on-demand in South Africa comes in the wake of the 44th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the National March for Life in Washington DC USA, where, Vice President Mike Pence addressed the over 500 000 marchers, affirming that the Right to Life of the pre-born. "Life is winning in America!" Mike Pence told the audience during his speech, emphasizing the electoral victories of pro-life candidates. That includes President Trump, in particular, who tweeted a message for protesters earlier in the day: "To all of you marching — you have my full support!" In his first week in office, Trump signed an Executive Memorandum to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, which stops taxpayer funding of groups that perform and promote abortions overseas. In the House of Representatives, a permanent version of the Hyde Amendment was passed. This prevents tax money from being used to pay for abortions in the US.
