"An entire generation in Italy has been lost since abortion was legalized in 1978, a law which has claimed the lives of more than 5 million unborn children. On May 13, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Rome will host its first March for Life to protest the legalization of abortion in Italy.
The March will begin at 9:30 am at the Colosseum, and will continue through Piazza Venezia, Largo Argentina, and then conclude at Castel San Angelo. Afterward, Angelo Cardinal Comastri will celebrate Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Basilica at 12:15 pm.
ZENIT recently spoke with Virginia Coda Nunziante, one of the March's organizers. Nunziante belongs to the Associazione Famiglia Domani, an association dedicated to the defense of the family.Full story from Zenit here.
By the way, here's why it's so important to March every year ....
"The inspiration for this year's March for Life in Rome comes from the March which is held every year in Washington D.C. "We have been participating for many years at the March for Life in Washington," Nunziante explained, "and we saw how important that was; always, year after year, more and more crowds, and many young people, and especially the result it had on the national level, and on the political level."
