March for Life 2015

Last Saturday, I travelled on a mini bus from Scotland to Birmingham to attend the March for Life UK.  We joined about 300 people from all over the UK to walk and witness to the sanctity of life of the unborn child.

The sun shone and there was alot of music and singing from everyone there.  Before we started we heard Archbishop Longley, the Bishop of Birmingham encourage us and then from Gianna Jessen, who survived a saline abortion in 1977 and tells her story of survival and forgiveness.   She was a powerful speaker as you can imagine and joy radiates from her.  She is fearless in her message of life and love and it was fantastic to listen to her in person.  One of her talks can be accessed here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5YlJ9CZ9fI

We did encounter opposition in the form of loud chanting through speakers but we outnumbered them and our peaceful message out shone them.  Let’s pray that we build on this event to make it bigger and stronger next year!
