Marchers to Mourn 1.3 Million Babies Killed By Abortion, 19th Anniversary of SA Abortion Law (1 February 2016)

Print

On 1 February 1997 abortion-on-demand was legalised in South Africa. By 1 February 2016 an estimated one million, three hundred thousand (1 300 000) babies in South Africa have lost their lives through abortion - legally - with tax-payers’ money.
 
March for Life
The 19th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion-on-demand in South Africa comes in the wake of the 43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the National March for Life in Washington DC USA, where, despite freezing weather, over 500 000, mostly young pro-lifers, took part in the annual March for Life on 23 January. American marchers mourned the 58 million pre-born babies killed since abortion was legalised in the USA.
 
National Day of Repentance
Cape Town: Monday, 1 February 2016, a funeral procession, led by a hearse, will be hosted by the Christian Action Network in memory of the thousands of babies, killed by abortion, who have never had a funeral. The march will also be led by a bagpiper, Piper James, playing the hymn Amazing Grace.
 
March to Parliament
The procession to Parliament will start at 12:30 from Keizersgracht Street parking lot (below CPUT, near wall painting of African woman and her baby) and march down Darling Street into Adderley Street, then into Plein Street to Parliament, where a Prayer Rally (13:00) will be held in memory of the innocent victims of the abortion holocaust. Africa Christian Action has been conducting Life Chains in South Africa every year since 1991 and Marches for Life to Parliament every year since 1997.

Fight for Burial of Stillborn Babies
An article published on Timeslive.co.za on 28 January detailed how laws preventing thousands of grieving people from burying stillborn babies are to be challenged. It is notable how the article acknowledges the personhood of the pre-born and yet, does not recognise the irony that it would be legal under SA law to abort those same, 20-week-old pre-born babies (who at this age are also viable outside the womb), many of whom the parents named.
 
Obituaries for Aborted Babies
Obituary notices will be placed on social media in memory of all babies killed by abortion since 1997. 
 
Cross-Western Cape Sanctity of Life Walk
An opportunity to talk to police recruits at the Police Academy in Oudtshoorn has been one of the highlights so far for a team of five walkers and three drivers who are trekking nearly 800km across the Western Cape to proclaim a Biblical pro-life message and collect signatures for a petition opposing abortion on demand, says team member Colette Thomas.
She says they addressed approximately 100 young police recruits who were about to be sent to different police stations in South Africa.
At the time of receiving this update, the team, which began walking on 20 January, had completed 378km of the Sanctity Life Walk and had also spoken to church groups in Beaufort West, and in Dyselssdorp.
The walk will culminate with and join the National Day of Repentance March for Life to Parliament on Monday, 1 February.
 
Sanctity Life Sunday
Throughout the country many church congregations and concerned individuals will observe 31 January as Sanctity Life Sunday. They will reflect on the atrocity of abortion and proclaim the sanctity of human life.  
 
Other pro-life demonstrations and prayer rallies are taking place this Saturday in Kempton Park, and on 13 February in Brits.
