3,000 Pro-lifers Take Part in German March for Life amid Covid Restrictions

Martin B├╝rger : Sep 24, 2020

"The March for Life was and is a pure pro-life demonstration. This includes all people from conception to death, their right to life and their protection of life. Therefore, we naturally observe the official regulations in Berlin, which require a mouth and nose covering, and a minimum distance as a hygiene concept, and we also have a stock of pro-life scarves on site for this purpose." -Alexandra Linder, chairwoman of Bundesverband Lebensrecht

"Only with the human dignity that every human being has unconditionally from his conception until his death, a humane constitutional state can last," she said. During an ecumenical worship service after the march, Archbishop Heiner Koch of Berlin asked, "What is man, what is actually his greatness, his dignity, what is his life?" Even though billions of people populate the earth, every single human person "is great, because every human being is unique … Man, never forget your greatness and dignity, never forget them, and promote the greatness of every human being in every phase of his life." Bishop Rudolf Voderholzer of Regensburg was present for the march, as were Bishop Wolfgang Ipolt of Görlitz, Germany's smallest diocese and the first to reinstate the Sunday obligation after the height of the coronavirus crisis, and Bishop Florian Wörner, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of Augsburg...
