Thousands of pro-life protesters took to the streets and descended upon the National Congress of the Dominican Republic 25Oct to announce their emphatic opposition to efforts to decriminalize abortion in the island nation.

Local media reported that due to the number of protesters traffic was halted on several streets and thoroughfares.

One group peacefully entered the National Congress, where they delivered a message stating that “the decriminalization of abortion is not a sign of progress, development, or modernity, but rather a retreat for humanity and a prostitution of moral values.”
