They are protesting against two bills which contain “

scandalous

provisions

according to the president of La marche pour la vie, Nicolas Tardy-Joubert, including the bioethics law which includes in particular the PMA for all.

They are also protesting against the bill extending the time limit for abortion from 12 to 14 weeks tabled by MP Albane Gaillot (ex-EDS) and voted on at first reading in the National Assembly with broad support from LREM and the left.

This bill must be considered this week in session in the Senate, with little chance of success.
