    2015 Canadian National March for Life
    The Canadian National March for Life is an annual event that commemorates the passage of the infamous Omnibus Bill, C-150, which decriminalized abortion. Every year thousands of pro-life Canadians descend upon Parliament hill to express their outrage at the legalized and government-funded murder of the most innocent and vulnerable Canadians – the unborn.

    Political leaders in Ottawa insist that the abortion debate is closed, but thousands of people who will march on Parliament Hill on Thursday, May 14th will beg to differ.

    The 17th annual March for Life will again see parents, grandparents and large swaths of high school students calling on the feds to ban abortion in Canada.

    Date: Thursday, May 14th, 2015
    Time: 12:00 pm
    Location: Parliament Hill, Ottawa.
