The Rome March for Life is “taking on a life of its own,” Father Francesco Giordano, director of Human Life International’s Rome office, told LifeSiteNews.
There were groups of priests and religious from the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, the Institute of the Incarnate Word, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, and the Society of St. Pius X. Students, youth groups, families, and a group of bagpipers from Tradition, Family, Property carried banners and flags. The Italian branch of Rachel’s Vineyard and other Christian organizations were represented as well.
The March ended with a rally at which abortion survivor Gianna Jessen urged pro-lifers to be “unashamed of Jesus” and Belgian Professor Stéphane Mercier praised Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mercier is facing investigation, and possible sacking, from the Catholic University of Louvain for presenting his students with philosophical arguments against abortion. Jessen was born during a failed saline abortion. (Photo: Rome MFL/via LifeSiteNews.com)
