The 2016 Berlin March for Life
On Saturday, September 17, 2016, many people from all over Germany and other European countries will gather for the annual German march for life „Marsch für das Leben“, a pro-life event to remember the aborted children and the innumerable women, men, and families who suffer from an abortion.
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 Berliner Erklärung (Berlin declaration) denotes aim, position and demands of the German march for life.
The „Marsch für das Leben“ is organized by Bundesverband Lebensrecht, an alliance of currently 13 organizations and initiatives with focus on different pro-life areas. It is supported by several members of the German parliament and many leaders from different organizations and churches.
The event starts at 13:00 h in front of the Reichstag building (Platz der Republik, 10557 Berlin), the seat of the German parliament, close to Hauptbahnhof (Berlin main station). It will end around 17:30 after an ecumenical church service.
How to get there: From Berlin Tegel airport (TXL), take bus TXL (20 min., 2,70 €), from Berlin Schönefeld airport (SXF), take the train RE7 or RB14 (35 min., 3,30 €) to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (main station). Bundestag/Reichstag is within walking distance (700 m) or one stop with U55 (subway) of Berlin Hauptbahnhof. For detailed directions and travelling information, please see the Teilnehmer-Infos.

Looking forward to welcome you in Berlin!
