Edition 2020 - All Together for Life [COVID-19]
Even during the corona crisis, we can mobilize to protect the lives of the weakest. But this year we will have to do that in a different way. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, it is difficult to march to defend the lives of the most vulnerable. But nothing prevents us from making us heard anyway! So we change the concept! We propose three actions.
A few days ago, we announced that the March for Life, which was scheduled for April 26, could not take place physically due to the spread of the coronavirus. What a desappointment ! Maybe for you, but certainly for us! The highlight of our year cannot be realized as we would have liked ...
But rest assured, we will still mobilize. We can't even do otherwise! Especially this year. Why? Because this year, it is 30 years since the first law was passed which (partially) decriminalized abortion (the law of April 3, 1990). And this year is also marked by very dangerous legislative proposals concerning abortion and euthanasia! Life, the weak, women, the elderly, disabled, the medical profession, freedom of conscience, are all under attack. We are the last to publicly oppose that in this country. It is even more important than ever this year to act. That is why, we invite you to mobilize anyway and participate in three actions!
Before you continue reading the rest of this page; thank you for your commitment, thank you for your efforts. If we all work together, one day abortion will only be a bad memory. Help us realize this dream!
Write a personal letter to a Member of Parliament
We invite you to write down the main reasons why you are against the abortion bill in a letter to a Member of Parliament. This letter is best handwritten, because it has a much greater impact on the people's representative. It may be more tiring for you, but the result is worth it! Writing an email is not always helpful, they get so many of them that they may no longer know which one to reed. Beware, it is better than nothing! But I would encourage you to send at least one letter by post, if possible handwritten.
Your letter is best short, maximum one page (without back, it will not be read), and personal. Explain why you are an opponent of the bill, you as a mother, father, caregiver, midwife, medical student, perhaps even as a former abortion patient, ... Do not name any association that is known in the field of Bioethics. They know our position, they need to know yours! I also advise you not to want to appear aggressive; convey your concerns in a loving way, even (and especially) to those who may disagree with us at first sight.
It doesn't make much sense to spend a lot of time writing to some MPs who are very strong advocates of this bill, such as K.G. (Open VLD) or K.J. (sp.a), or to members of parliament who will vote against anyway, such as Ms. Veerle Van Peel (N-VA) or Ms. Els Van Hoof (CD&V). Send us an email with your home and we will send you some names of representatives to whom your letter could impress and have effect.
2. Confinement Challenge
On social media we can see various initiatives by people who show solidarity with the victims of the coronavirus, caregivers, etc. Let us also express our solidarity for the victims of abortion and euthanasia! We might think that the lockdown prevents abortion and euthanasia. On the contrary, these remain possible, and women and those in need are increasingly left alone to make this dramatic decision. So let's not wait until the end of the lockdown to defend Life, and this year in particular, marked by very dangerous legislative proposals on abortion and euthanasia!
Therefore take part in our action: film yourself while saying this sentence: "Pour le respect de la Vie aussi, j'applaudis" in French, or "Ook uit respect voor elk leven, klap ik even" in Dutch. You also can say this sentence in an alternative language, but please make sure to also say it in the same video in at least one of the three national languages of Belgium as well (French, Dutch or German). All your videos will be put together into one great movie that goes around the world. Let social media become a means of showing the joy of respecting Life. We have already done this. Watch our video below.
Send us your video via email, or via a private message in Facebook or Instagram.
3. Solidarity action
Collect baby clothes, pampers and we will pick them up, or make a transfer to our bank account. All donations go to family assistance centers. On this page we will give you more information in the coming days.
