Upon the request of Dutch Catholic blogger IngridAiram, I share her invitation to all Catholics in the Netherlands (as well as, conceivably, Christians of other churches and church communities) to come to The Hague on 8 December and make a stand for life.
Ingrid notes the value that the Catholic Church attaches to life in all its forms, but especially that of the poor, the weak, the elderly and especially the unborn. Yet the Catholic presence at previous Marches for Life was rather small. She writes:
“That is why I would like to urge, beg you, to walk the March for Life in The Hague with me.To witness to life and the respect for all life, as Christ had. A silent march through The Hague, silence as a symbol for the child that has no voice. We must be that voice. For every life has value.”
