A number of media outlets picked up stories on yesterday’s March for Life.
Some report attendance of only 10,000 whereas LifeSiteNews reports that a record-breaking 25,000 people participated in this year’s March. Twenty-one Members of Parliament attended as well as two Senators.
The National Post ran some stories, including the following:
- John Invinson wrote about the March, MP Mark Warawa’s statement on gendercide, and the importance of taking small practical steps:
The pro-lifers in the House have learned the lesson of the Harper playbook that helped take the Conservative party from the wilderness to power: Make progress in small, practical steps.
- Michael Den Tent wrote about how PM Stephen Harper is “de facto leader of Canada’s pro-choice movement.”
There was also coverage by Canada.com, iPolitics, London Free Press, NG News, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, The Star Phoenix, Ottawa Citizen, The Gazette, Time Colonist, Leader-Post, and The Guardian. (I don’t have links for the last few as I came across them through a subscription-based database.)
Is this more coverage than years past?
Andrea adds: Yes, that’s my impression. I also heard radio coverage on CBC and 580 CFRA.by
