Day Of The Unborn Set

The nation joins several countries across the globe in the annual observance of the Day of the Unborn on March 25, in recognition of the unborn and of the urgent need to stop the practice of abortion.
Pro-Life Philippines, which leads the observance in the country said, the Day of the Unborn “is a way of expressing grief for the innocent aborted babies who never had the chance to see the splendor of God’s creation and never felt the warmth of their mother’s embrace and father’s protection.
The event seeks to serve as an awakening to those who view abortion as a way out of pregnancy instead of a blessing of a new life.” March 25, traditionally observed as the Feast of the Annunciation on the Catholic calendar, was declared the “Day of the Unborn” in the Philippines by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo through of Proclamation No. 586 issued in 2004.

This year, however, the Feast of the Annunciation has been moved to March 26 in deference to the observance of the Fifth Sunday of Lent on March 25. (Christina I. Hermoso and Leslie Ann Aquino)
