Bioethics: Several thousand people gathered during the "March for Life"

On Sunday January 17, many demonstrators gathered in Paris during the March for Life to protest against the bioethics bill which will be examined on January 19 by the Senate.

Prs than 5 people mobilized on Sunday January 000 at Place du Trocadéro in Paris for the 13th edition of the March for Life, while around 10 people followed the protest online on Zoom or Facebook.

It is to protest against the proposed law Gaillot adopted last October by the National Assembly who wishes extend the legal deadline for abortion from 12 to 14 weeks and remove the conscience clause for health professionals relating to abortion that this gathering took place. Demonstrators are also protesting against another piece of legislation, the bioethics law which will be examined in second reading by the senators at the beginning of February and which includes in particular medically assisted procreation (PMA) for all.

While the Gaillot law will be examined by the Senate this week, the organizers of the Walk for life wish to recall that "abortion is first and foremost violence against women and unborn children" and that "the gear that leads to abortion is not inevitable".

“Abortion: stop the culture of waste” was the slogan of this 13th edition of the March for Life, which many demonstrators illustrated by wearing a mask with a baby's face and a garbage bag.

Jaeghere victory, aggregate philosopher and former spokesperson for the March for Life spoke out to denounce the removal of the conscience clause, "these few lines that protect our caregivers". She also has recalled the “duty to protect life”.
