This year's March for the Babies will be held on Saturday 12th October.
The March has been held each year in Victoria since 2009, and is in response to the Abortion Law Reform Act passed in 2008 in Victoria, which makes abortion available for any reason up to 24 weeks. 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.
Last year, over 3,500 people marched through the Melbourne CBD calling for a change of culture for the unborn and a repeal of the Victorian legislation, considered to be one of the most extreme abortion laws in the Western world.
If you are in Victoria, we encourage you to join in the March for the Babies this October.
When: Saturday 12th October 2013
Where: meet at Treasury Gardens, corner of Spring Street and Wellington Parade, Melbourne
Wear: pink and blue
