Priests for Life once again took part in Italy's annual "March for Life" in Rome which was held on May 21, 2022. The event was inspired by the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. but in Italy, it takes on a whole character on its own. Thousands came out to march for life in 81 degree sunny weather for this most important event. Congratulations to the organizers of “Scegli Amo La Vita” and all those who supported the march.
