Don't forget 'March for the Babies', Saturday 13 October in Melbourne
· October 01, 2012 10:00 AM
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.

Victoria: March for the Babies - 13th October 2012
· August 22, 2012 10:00 AM
March for the Babies is on Saturday 13 October 2012. The March is in response to the Abortion Law Reform Act passed in 2008 in Victoria, which makes abortion available for any reason up to birth. After that time a woman can obtain an abortion if two doctors agree – the reasons that can be used not only cover life and health issues – they include “social circumstances” as well.
The March commences at 1pm from Treasury Gardens and will feature an address from Lord Nicholas Windsor. The organizers are targeting an attendance of 20,000 to send a clear message to the Victorian Parliament that “we the people” demand right for the unborn child.
The March for the Babies Committee also invites anyone to attend its inaugural March for the Babies Oration Dinner with Lord Nicholas Windsor on the eve of the March, Friday 12
October 2012. The dinner commences at 7pm and will be held at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins Grand Ballroom. Please visit the
