On 10 October 2008, the Victorian Parliament passed the Abortion Law Reform Act, one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world. This law eliminated all legal protection for Victorian children until the moment of birth.

The March for the Babies Committee was established with the assistance of representatives from leading pro-life groups throughout Victoria and on 10 October 2009 organised the first march to commemorate the passing of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 one year earlier. In remembrance of this shameful day, we gather to March for the Babies who never see the light of day in Victoria.

The march occurs each October on or around the 10th, calling for the repeal of the law which allows babies to be killed right up until the moment of birth and is the most extreme in the Western world.

Together we express our profound disapproval at our Government's failure to:

  • Protect the fundamental right of life of every person in our State.

  • Offer real help to women in crisis pregnancies and other who have suffered through abortion.

  • Allow freedom of conscience for our health care professionals.

Our goal is to overturn this terrible law and provide full legal protection to our most vulnerable Victorians.

Please join us as we march in this peaceful witness to life from Treasury Gardens to Parliament House and hear inspirational speakers and music with a message of courage and hope.
