Country-wide Marches on 17th Anniversary of the Legalisation of Abortion (30 January 2014)

Print

On 1 February 1997 abortion-on-demand was legalised in South Africa. By 1 February 2014 an estimated one million, two hundred thousand (1 200 000) babies in South Africa will have lost their lives through abortion - legally - with tax-payers’ money.

 

March for Life

The 17th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion-on-demand in South Africa comes in the wake of the 41th anniversary of Roe v Wade in the USA. Despite freezing weather, 650 000 mostly young pro-lifers took part in the annual March for Life in Washington DC on 22 January.

 

Change of Heart

Interestingly, the individuals who initiated the “Roe” of Roe v Wade and the “Doe” of Doe v Bolton (the two Supreme Court Cases that made abortion legal throughout the USA in all 9 months of pregnancy), are both now outspoken supporters of the pro-life movement.

National Day of Repentance

Cape Town: Tomorrow, Friday, 31 January 2014, a funeral procession will be hosted by the Christian Action Network in memory of the thousands of babies, killed by abortion, who have never had a funeral.

March to Parliament

The procession to Parliament will start at 12:30 from Keizersgracht Street parking lot (below CPUT, near wall mural of African woman and her baby) and march down Darling Street into Buitenkant Street to Parliament (entrance in Roeland St), where a Prayer Rally (12:50) will be held in memory of the innocent victims of the abortion holocaust.

 

Life vs Abortion: Women available for interviews

Women who have had an abortion, and can testify to the devastating after-effects, are available for media interviews. A woman whose mother tried to abort her and her twin sister is also available for interviews.

Obituaries for Aborted Babies

An obituary notice will be placed in the Cape Argus and in Die Burger newspapers in memory of all babies killed by abortion since 1997. 

Sanctity Life Sunday

Throughout the country many church congregations and concerned individuals observed 26 January as Sanctity Life Sunday. They reflected on the sad reality of abortion and proclaimed the sanctity of human life. Other congregations are observing 2 February as Sanctity Life Sunday.

 A pro-life demonstration and prayer rally will take place this weekend in East London and Bloemfontein. A March for Life will take place in Durban on Sunday, 5 October.(See contact details below).
