Why we march

  • The US Supreme Court, 40 years after Roe v. Wade, reversed its erroneous ruling and clearly recognized that constitutional abortion rights do not exist. The US gives us all great hope; but we in Belgium can expect (public) activism to recognize abortion as a constitutional right. Indeed, a proposal to include an abortion right in our constitution has already been introduced in Parliament. In France, moreover, the same is happening. Let's march together to recognize that a right to abortion does not exist and to ask that our attention be focused on clear and concrete means that put real solutions for women at the center of herself and her unborn child.


  • Not only are the unborn under pressure, but the lives of our elderly and sick people also do not receave the honour they deserve. However, the European Court of Human Rights condemned Belgium in 2022 for a violation of the right to life due to ineffective ex-post control of euthanasia cases. We demand that the Belgian parliament finally reform the euthanasia evaluation commission, which the March for Life has been demanding for years, and that it refrain from further extensions of the law, e.g. euthanasia for people with dementia.


  • A few years ago, surrogacy was still condemned by the European Parliament, but recently backdoor attempts have been made to impose surrogacy on all European Member States by requiring each country to recognize parentage that was established in another Member State through surrogacy where it is legal. The European Commission is trying to expand its own powers and we therefore ask the Commission to refrain from doing so, and we ask the Belgian Parliament, on the contrary, to specify that any surrogacy is a violation of the rights of the child and of the principles of the unavailability and non-commercialization of the human body..
