Warsaw, Poland (06/17/2024 18:56, Gaudium Press) Last Sunday, June 16, Polish citizens from ten cities across the country united in a demonstration in defense of life. A series of marches took to the streets of Warsaw and other cities under the slogan ‘United for Life, Family, and Homeland’.

In the Polish capital, Catholics marched to St. Alexander’s Church, located at Three Crosses Square, where a Holy Mass was celebrated. Afterwards, participants passed by the Parliament and the Prime Minister’s Office. The march concluded in front of the Monument to Marshal Józef Piłsudski.

Defense of the Right to Life from Conception to Natural Death

According to Paweł Kwaśniak, coordinator of the Marches for Life and Family from the Center for Life and Family, these actions are a way to “express concern about activities that attack social and moral order.” “We appeal to the authorities to abandon such actions that undermine the rights to life from conception to natural death and to respect the principles derived from the Christian faith and Latin civilization,” he emphasized.

Paweł Kwaśniak further explained that the demonstrations by the Center for Life and Family are directly against four pending projects in the country’s Parliament that extend the legality of abortion up to the 12th week of fetal life and are also an opposition to attempts to deny the principle that parents raise their children according to their conscience.

Bell ‘The Voice of the Unborn’

The March for Life and Family in Warsaw is accompanied by the bell ‘The Voice of the Unborn’, which will ring throughout the march with the aim of “awakening the consciences of deputies, senators, government members, the prime minister, and the president.” From April to October, marches will be held in more than 50 cities, always supported by the Polish Episcopal Conference.
