The March for Life is an annual rally protesting both the practice and legality of abortion.

«To secure full legal protection for all human beings, from the time of conception to natural death.»

Abortion in Canada is legal at all stages of pregnancy,] and is governed by the Canada Health Act. While some non-legal obstacles exist, Canada is one of only a few nations with no legal restrictions on abortion.

Prior to 1969, all abortion was illegal in Canada. The Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1968–69 introduced by Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government legalized abortion, as long as a committee of doctors signed off that it was necessary for the physical or mental well-being of the mother. In 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in R. v. Morgentaler that the existing laws were unconstitutional, and struck down the 1969 law. The then-governing Progressive Conservatives attempted but failed, to pass a new abortion law, and since then Canada has had no criminal laws governing the subject, and abortion is a decision made by a woman with her doctor.

In 2005, 97,254 abortions were reported in Canada; it is estimated that this number «represents approximately 90% of all abortions performed in Canada involving Canadian residents».

«For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.» Psalm 139:13
