2016 March for the Babies shows growing Support for Prolife Cause

Thousands flocked to the steps of Parliament on Saturday to protest Victoria’s abortion laws, mourn the many lives lost, and advocate for a culture of life that provides women with real choice and real support.

It was encouraging to see people of all ages and backgrounds at the March for the Babies – a testament to the breadth of the pro-life cause. This year’s theme was ‘life equality’.

Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins took the opportunity to announce the new pro-life political movement called Move to Change (formerly the 20 Week Movement) which has started up in Victoria. The formal launch for this movement will be at the Gala dinner on the 25th February 2017.

Move to Change is designed solely to advance pro-life legislation – we must move to change abortion laws, and move to change the make-up of parliament to introduce more pro-life MPs into our parliament. More information on this movement can be found when the website launches in the near future at www.movetochange.org.au

MFTB has been taking place at the same time every year since 2008, when Victoria legalised abortion up to birth and took away our health professionals’ fundamental right to conscience.
