Africa Christian Action, a non-profit organisation based in Claremont, is appealing for public support of their march against abortion on Thursday 31 January.

The march will start from Keizersgracht Street in Cape Town and continue to the National Assembly. The protest comes as the nation marks 22 years since the legalisation of abortion. Taryn Lourens, the coordinator, says Christians who respect the sanctity of life will be observing Thursday as a day of prayer and repentance for the national sin of abortion. She calls on everyone, irrespective of race, age and gender, to participate and have their voices heard.

Lourens says there is power in unity and if many people from different aspects of life could pray together and stand up for unborn babies, they could win their fight.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Proverbs 31:8: ‘Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter’.

“Most of the medical personnel in our country are church members. Most mothers go to church. Most voters in South Africa claim to be Christians. If Christians in South Africa could stop and look at the abortion holocaust in the light of the Bible, if we could understand something of the heart of God on this disgraceful abomination, then we would be roused to prayer and action,” says Lourens.
