The B.C. Catholic has learned this year's National March for Life rally in Ottawa is expected to surpass last year's participation. Canadian Catholic News' Deborah Gyapong reports:
The 15th National March for Life here May 10 is expected to exceed last year’s record attendance of 15,000 people.

“We were absolutely delighted with the turnout last year and we’re looking forward to an even bigger turnout this year,” said Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) national organizer Mary Ellen Douglas.

CLC has organized the March to take place on the second Thursday in May to mark the anniversary of the 1969 Trudeau Omnibus Bill that decriminalized abortion and eventually led to Canada’s current lack of any laws restricting abortion at any stage of pregnancy.
