The March for Life in Vienna. When pro life hope comes from young people
About 2,500 people, especially very young people, Saturday 16 October they marched through the streets of Vienna in honor of the defense of life, from conception to natural death, starting from the cathedral of Santo Stefano which is located in the heart of the Austrian capital.
A hope that Europe too, such as the United States – where 50% of young people are reported to be prolife – can become a bulwark of civilization for the defense of life, born and unborn.
Many young people also among the organizers of the march, including the 30-year-old president Alexander Tschueggel, known conservative militant of the Austrian landscape and pro-life activist on an international scale.
Despite the beautiful climate among young people, unity in the defense of life, there was no lack of protests from abortionists, who for the umpteenth time have shown their deep hatred towards life and its supporters. Some, in fact, presented themselves covered in balaclavas to insult and denigrate those who manifested freely. There was no lack of discussions, in particular between myself and a girl who screamed: “my body, my choice”, so much so that I reminded her that her son’s body will never be her body and suppressing it will never be her choice .
Meanwhile they waved placards with violent slogans such as “if your mother would have had an abortion”, accompanied by a slew of insults of all kinds. A violence that brings to light all the hatred that lurks in the abortion world, to such an extent that they came to counter-demonstrators with the police, throwing smoke bombs and marching. Fortunately, an attempt failed.
Despite these hitches, it was an extraordinary event, in which I had the honor of participating and which allowed me to be the voice of the voiceless even beyond the Italian borders. So, like so many other participants – I had the opportunity to share my testimony and bring, that is to add my participation of public opinion in considering the womb for what it should actually be: the safest place in the world, where life a mother gives it to her child and does not take it away. Each of us, in fact, can offer his own precious contribution to this precious cause, which as a whole goes to accompany humanity towards the end of abortion and lay the foundations for building a solid culture of life.
There was also an opportunity to get to know Filomena, a little girl who represents a ray of light in the hypocrisy of the world. One of those many people who probably for those who kept screaming behind us should never have been born due to down syndrome and that in recent times it is witnessing unprecedented eugenics at the European level, as well as throughout the world. So much so that according to the European Journal of human Genetics, the number of children born with Down syndrome in recent years has halved to get closer and closer to zero in highly civilized Iceland and Denmark, where the percentage of abortions of children with down syndrome it touches 100% and 98% respectively. A real ethnic cleansing in the name of the phantom “women’s rights”.
It is in fact hypocritical, especially by some politicians, to speak of inclusion, of respect for minorities, when in reality one pretends to call “right” that of killing everything that is different before birth. True inclusion begins in the womb.
The March for Life in Vienna is therefore an important example, which should govern young people in particular to a better pro-life environment, even beyond our borders. A precious European opportunity to create new contacts on an international scale, which should teach us to always be united and always ready to fight on the front line for the defense of life, born and unborn.
