On Saturday, 29th March 2014 the 14th annual National March for Life passed through the centre of the capital. Several thousand people from the whole country took part as expected. The organizers estimated that there were 3,500 participants, every one of whom expressed their opposition to induced abortion. The March for Life gained the support of almost 30 personalities of political, religious and public life and more than forty Czech and foreign
organizations.

The March for Life was preceded by religious services at three churches in Prague: in the Greek-Catholic Cathedral of St. Clement, where the mass was celebrated by the Apostolic Exarch Ladislav Hučko, in the church of St. Mary of Victories (that is, at the Church of the Infant of Prague), where the mass was celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun, Salzburg, in particular for foreign-language guests and participants of the March and at the Dominican Church of St. Giles, where the mass was celebrated by Dominic Cardinal Duka, OP together with over 20 priests from the whole country….”

As with all Walks for Life a wholesome family atmosphere prevailed:
