OTTAWA, Ontario, May 8, 2013 ( – A pro-life MP told the House of Commons yesterday that the 2013 March for Life will be an “amazing event”.

“Mr. Speaker, I am proud to stand today to talk about an amazing event that will take place this week in the nation's capital. It is the 2013 National March For Life,” MP Leon Benoit said during Statements by Members yesterday afternoon.


This year the theme for the March is: “End Female Gendercide: 'It's a girl' should not be a death sentence”.

Benoit outlined the events that are expected to be attended by thousands of people demanding justice for the unborn.

These included a pro-life prayer service and a pro-life mass this evening followed by a candlelight vigil for abortion victims at the Human Rights monument.

The House also heard about the massive rally on the hill tomorrow at noon, which is expected to be draw tens of thousands of pro-life advocates, followed by a March through the streets of downtown Ottawa.

Benoit also mentioned the Rose Dinner and Youth Banquet following the March at Ottawa’s Hampton Inn. He also mentioned that events will conclude on Friday with the Youth Conference & Workshops.

“I am proud to stand here today to thank everyone involved in the pro-life movement for the work they do, and to congratulate them for the efforts they put forth to have this wonderful March For Life, which is such an important issue for all of us,” he said.
