Today, thousands joined the annual National March for Life on Parliament Hill, letting the Prime Minister, MPs, and senators know that Canadians have not forgotten, and will never forget, the child in the womb.

"Human beings have human rights," Conservative Alberta MP Arnold Viersen told the crowd. "Human rights begin when the human being begins. Science tells us when the human being begins: human beings begin at conception. Therefore we must defend the human rights of all human beings."

"Well, Mr. Prime Minister, look out of your window, look down here. We will not go away.
