Anti-abortion activists stage silent march in Budapest
font size    

About 1,000 people gathered on Budapest's St. Gellert Square on Thursday to stage a march against abortion, local media reported.

The event, which was called "March of Life for the Future," started with an ecumenical mass celebrated by Bishop Laszlo Biro.

The silent crowd, carrying white crosses decorated with roses, crossed the Danube on Szabadsag Bridge, marched by the Parliament Building to Margaret Bridge from where they threw hundreds of roses into the river in memory of the unborn victims due to abortion.

More than 6 million fetuses have fallen victim to induced abortions since abortions were legalized in Hungary on June 4, 1956, according to a press release.
