Thousands attend pro-life rally in Croatian capital ahead of local elections

On 29 May, thousands of pro-lifers rallied in the Croatian capital of Zagreb ahead of local and mayoral elections.

Luka Hudincec, one of the rally’s organisers, told reporters: “It’s our duty to advocate for protection of every human life, including unborn children”. He also emphasised that the march sought to demonstrate on behalf of the elderly against possible euthanasia.

Another organiser, Stjepan said: “We expect the politicians who represent us on both local and national level to uphold the basic human right – the right to live”. 

Organisers also urged officials to provide more support to pregnant women.

Many young people were among the thousands of peaceful demonstrators, and banners reading “Unborn lives matter too” were displayed.

One demonstrator told Croatia’s national broadcaster HRT that human lives needed more protection. He said: “Some animal species are protected, but the human life is not”.

A female member of the rally told HRT that she was attending to show “how much joy it brings to us to contribute in creating life”.

The march took place in the western parts of downtown Zagreb to Zrinjevac park.

Several counter-marchers also rallied outside the Croatian National Theatre, demanding a liberalisation of abortion laws.

Another Hod Za Život (walk for life) also took place in the southern town of Imotski on the same day – the first time a rally of this kind was held in the town.

Catherine Robinson, spokesperson for Right To Life UK said: “It is wonderful to see that so many people, including young people, took so peacefully and enthusiastically to the streets of Croatia to stand up for the rights for the unborn and the elderly”.

Dear reader,

Earlier this year, abortion campaigners brought forward an amendment to the UK Government’s flagship Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill that would have introduced abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth (including sex-selective abortion).

Thanks to the support from people like you, this amendment did not go to a vote and pass, but we expect the abortion lobby to make another attempt to introduce this extreme abortion law change shortly.

This would be the single biggest change to abortion legislation since 1967 and would leave England and Wales with one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world.

Please sign the petition to Boris Johnson, asking him to ensure that his Government does everything in its power to stop the introduction of abortion up to birth.
