15,000 Turn Out for Dutch March for Life: The Netherlands is known worldwide for its euthanasia policies. This week the nation broke with tradition when 15,000 turned out in freezing weather…for the Dutch March for Life in the Hague.

According to Irene van der Wende, founder of websites Abortioninformation.eu and AbortusInformatie.nl: “Never before have so many people turned up for a Dutch March for Life in the city of the seat of the government.”  In addition to staged events, a temporary memorial  featured pink and blue flags as a symbol for the 31,000 babies killed last year in the Netherlands. Marches for Life are expanding in Europe.

The crowd assembled, held signs but was generally quiet, praying, singing a psalm, and listening to speakers. LifeSiteNews reported there were numerous speakers: Kees van Helden of Cry for Life, Kees van der Staaij of the SGP party, which represents the Reformed Christians in the country, Gert-Jan Segers, parliamentary member  for the ChristenUnie (Christian Union) party, Peter Smith, U.N. Lobbyist, pro-life leader Alex Van Vuuren and others.
