An estimated 15,000 people attended the Canadian March for Life on Thursday in Ottawa.

James Hughes, national president of the Campaign Life Coalition, said marchers were upbeat, and the clergy powerfully represented the faith.

“Mother Teresa on Parliament Hill back in the late ‘80s … turned to me and said ‘the interesting thing about the prolife movement is that it is ordinary people doing extraordinary things for God’,” Hughes recounted.

Pro-choice activists blocked the original route for this year’s march. Organizers were prepared, Hughes said, and had prepared alternate routes in advance. They also beefed up security.

… The Canadian March for Life began 21 years ago, when Hughes was encouraged to start it by Nellie Gray, the founder for the annual pro-life march in Washington D.C.
