Life Wins In Ljubljana

“Life wins in Ljubljana!” announced Aleš Primc, a campaigner for children’s rights and against Janković’s poisoning of Ljubljana’s drinking water. The March for Life took place in Ljubljana on Saturday, the 7th of October.

The March for Life started on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in Ljubljana. The event took place on the streets of the capital. The march aims to give a voice to those who do not have one, that is, to unborn children and their mothers and fathers in need. They believe that children are the treasure of humanity. And it is our duty to create a situation in which all children, born and unborn, are guaranteed all fundamental human rights, including the right to life.

It is important to note that in Slovenia, according to the National Institute of Public Health, at least 2,926 children were deprived of their lives in hospitals in the year 2021. This is in addition to the number of children who lost their lives after the 10th week of pregnancy – in chemical abortions, using abortifacient contraception, and in procedures involving biomedical treatment, which are not recorded in the national statistics. Since 1952, more than 700,000 unborn children have been aborted in Slovenia. This is appalling and unacceptable.

The March for Life initiative draws attention to the regulations that protect life from conception to natural death and recognise unborn children as persons. Article 17 of the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia states that “human life is inviolable”, and Article 18 states that “No one shall be subjected to torture, inhuman or degrading punishment or treatment.” Abortion itself, like euthanasia, is about torturing the most helpless members of our society. The State recognises the humanity of the unborn child in Article 20 of the Funeral and Cemetery Services Act, which allows for the burial or cremation of a dead child, regardless of its gestational age, and in Article 125 of the Inheritance Act, which states that an unborn child may inherit property from its parents.
