“The president of the Congress, Luis Galarreta, Catholic and evangelical religious people, politicians, parents with their young children, pro-life groups and private schools linked to the church participated in the peaceful march”, you can read in El Universal.
Last year, this march was suspended by the Catholic Church, in solidarity with the hundred victims of the floods in Peru, explained El Universal.
“It is not a celebration against anyone, it is a celebration in favor of life,” said the archbishop of Lima, Juan Luis Cipriani, first cardinal of Opus Dei in Latin America.
In Peru, abortion is legal in the case of a serious malformation of the fetus or when the mother’s life is in danger. “The march is made, according to the organizers, to celebrate ‘The Day of the Child to be Born’, a law passed in 2001”, informed El Universal.
Also, feminist groups estimate that there are 376,000 abortions annually, the vast majority in unsafe conditions.
