The British March for Life will be in London this year after six years in Birmingham.
The march, which takes place each year around the time that the 1967 Abortion Act took effect, started as a small gathering in 2012 but now attracts numbers in the thousands.
This year’s march will involve speeches in Parliament Square, as well as a series of events in Westminster Central Hall including pro-life workshops and an exhibition.
Organisers told the Catholic Herald: “The moving of March for Life/LifeFest18 to central London is a huge step forward for pro-life activism in the UK.
“It demonstrates the rising awareness of the abortion issue by the media and general public and the increasing threats from many quarters to the unborn child as well as those who wish to try and protect them. This year’s event is not to be missed.”
Having been unable to sell in churches for well over a year due to the pandemic, we are now inviting readers to support the Herald by investing in our future. We have been a bold and influential voice in the church since 1888, standing up for traditional Catholic culture and values.
Please join us on our 130 year mission by supporting us. We are raising £250,000 to safeguard the Herald as a world-leading voice in Catholic journalism and teaching. For more information from our chairman on contributing to the Herald Patron's Fund, click here
