The 2014 Berlin March for Life
On September 20, 2014, many people from all over Germany and other European countries will gather for the annual Berlin march for life („Marsch für das Leben“), a pro-life event to remember the aborted children and the unnumerous women, men, and families who suffer from an abortion.
The march starts at 13:00 (1 p.m.) in front of Bundeskanzleramt (seat of the German chancellor), next to Berlin main station (Hauptbahnhof) and Reichstag (seat of the German parliament). Street address: Willy-Brandt-Straße, 10557 Berlin
With the Berlin march for life, we call the German socitey and politics to take action to really prevent and avoid abortion and to better help unplanned pregnant parents in need. We are also deeply concerned about the silent increase of acceptance of euthanasia in Europe, as it is already being practiced again in some countries.
The march for life is organized by Bundesverband Lebensrecht, an alliance of currently 14 organizations and initiatives with focus on different pro-life areas. The march is supported by several members of the German parliament and many people from different organizations and churches.
Save the date: The Berlin March for Life usually takes place on the second last Saturday in September.
