Standing up for life around the world

People all around the world are prepared to stand up for life, as can be seen from the following news:
  • Legislators in the Dominican Republic vote to modify the constitution to guarantee the right to life from conception to natural death. Catholics pray that those legislators who voted against the pro-life move will "reflect upon their decision".
  • Thousands of Poles brave a torrential downpour to march for life through the centre of Warsaw, the capital (pictured).
  • Polls in Spain find that a majority of Spaniards are against the government's plan to allow abortions for children without parental consent.
So there's every reason for hope when there are so many people around the world who support pro-life values.
