A March for Life event will be held in Cape Town on Tuesday February 1, the 25th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion on demand in South Africa, says Africa Christian Action (ACA) in a news release.

The anniversary will also be marked by pro-life Christians by observing Sunday January 30 as a day of prayer and repentance for the national sin of abortion, says ACA. It says more than two million babies have been killed in SA by abortion in the past 25 years.

ACA, which has organised a March for Life on every anniversary of the abortion legislation, invites citizens to join in this year’s march to Parliament followed by a prayer vigil and repentance service outside the gates to Parliament.

The march will start at 12.30pm at the Hanover Street (old Keizergracht Street) parking lot below Cape Peninsula University of Technology (near the wall painting of an African woman). The march will take the form of a funeral procession led by a hearse. Participants are asked to dress in black and bring their own water. ACA will provide placards and crosses to carry.

If you cannot join the march you are welcome to join the prayer vigil at the main gates of Parliament (at the corner of Roeland and Plein Streets) at 1pm, says ACA.

  1. A human child requires at least two decades of nurture by adults before it becomes a fully contributing member of society. Are pro-life people saying that they will personally rear the unwanted children of people seeking abortions?
