Dear supporters of life,

Thank you for putting aside other concerns today and for coming together to say that we are pro-life.

Here’s what it means to me to be pro-life and what you and other thousands of Romanians showcased today and in this Month for Life.

#respect

First of all, respect. Pro-life attitude means respect for women in pregnancy crisis, for unborn children, for single mothers and single fathers who raise their children, for people with disabilities, and for all those involved in adoption. It means respect for women and men affected by the abortion trauma, for people that are in pain because their siblings have not had the chance to see the light of day and enjoy life, and they know they are basically survivors in their families and this fact hurts them. It means respect for all the children who have perished before they were born. That is, respect for every person, from the moment of conception.

#realism

Pro-life attitude means realism. We are fully aware that every man is unique from the first second of his life. We are fully aware of the statistics that hurt us: in Romania, since 1958, over 23,000,000 abortions have been made and this number does not include abortions in private clinics after 1990, drug abortions and abortions made by Romanians that are abroad. Basically, more Romanian nations were not born, although they existed.

What do we understand from these sad numerical facts? When we know that the lack of support is directly proportional to the number of abortions and that there are more abortions than the actual number of citizens in Romania, we understand that the ideal would be that every Romanian needs to understand what pregnancy is and to help the women around them that are going through the pregnancy crisis.

#work

That’s why pro-life means work. A lot, a lot of work, and we do not say it proudly, but with the satisfaction that we can do it. Here are some numbers that bring us a lot of joy. In 2014, the March for Life took place in 40 settlements in Romania. In 2019, people around 600 of settlements in Romania and Republic of Moldova support life. From a few thousands of people, today we are hundreds of thousands. Hundreds of thousands of people that convert the gratitude that they have been born, into work for life. Hundreds of thousands of people who are united in the most important project in this world, after faith in God: supporting life. A project that is hard but also important.

New support centres for women in pregnancy have been opened in recent years. Hundreds of people have decided to actively engage in their communities, they have participated in pro-life training programs and are pioneers. Thus, more and more people understand that behind each abortion there is a lot of support.

#solidarity

To be pro-life means to be solidary with your peers. In the European Union, 96% of children that are detected in an intrauterine pregnancy with a Down syndrome potential are aborted. Where are the solidary adults in these cases? Then, when parents find the strength to get through with the pregnancy and raise their children, instead of receiving more support from others, like the state and the society in general, they are often ostracized and isolated. They look for therapy programs, funds, and projects that give their children with special needs, real opportunities to achieve their true potential and they find nothing. In fact, there is no solidarity. Solidarity is the solution to such problems, not cutting of children that are receiving this diagnosis in the mother’s womb. Creating an environment that values their lives is just as important as creating an environment that facilitates the development of a champion or a scientist.

#love

To be pro-life means not to hate, but to love. The pregnancy crisis generates no fault of the unborn baby. We cannot cast the responsibility on the woman’s shoulders that is left alone in the pregnancy crisis. To cast responsibility on the shoulders of a man, who in most cases is pushing for abortion or leaving the mother that carries his child, is not effective, because most often he was not educated what being responsible means and was not asked to be responsible. And no matter how hard it seems to fulfil, we would help doctors respect Hippocrates’s oath to protect life and not kill life, not through hatred, but through love. This love exists when we receive within the dropping of God’s love for all beings.

#faith

Faith means trusting someone outside you. Trust God, trust people that will choose good. A faith that does not fall when you see that evil is being done, that an innocent child loses his life, that a parent’s soul tears apart by consenting to the killing of the child. Without faith, the pro-life movement could not exist.

Be pro-life: respect, realism, work, solidarity, love, faith! Continue to support! Continue to get involved! Continue to be the right man in the right place when a pregnant woman needs help! By watering the flowers of life, we become a community of love, as we all want!

Thank you.

Press Release The 2019 March for Life “Unique from the first second”: the uniqueness of every man and the joy of life will win!

On Saturday 23 March, Romania and the Republic of Moldova celebrated the 2019 March for Life “Unique from the first second”. The March is the culmination of the pro-life events in the Month for life 2019, 1-31 March, which takes place in more than 670 cities and villages in Romania and the Republic of Moldova.

What can we do in the face of 1 billion abortions in the last century? In the face of 42 million abortions that took place in the world in 2018? Or in the face of over 23 million abortions in Romania since 1958? Let us express the truth about the life of the child that is about to come in the world and support women in crisis.

This year’s march for life has shown that the pro-life attitude wins the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Romanians. Every year, more and more people understand that solidarity saves lives, that the support for women in pregnancy crisis is something natural and vital to a society that respects life.

“Today, life wins in 670 cities from Romania and Republic of Moldova. Thanks to you, we are now thousands of arms stretching towards women in pregnancy crisis, showing them that we are by their side. Thanks to you, we are thousands of hearts that knock alongside unborn babies, bearing in them the desire to protect them. Thanks to you, we are thousands of voices saying “Yes, I am grateful for the gift of life! said Eliza Maria Cloţea, chairman of the Students’ for Life Association and student in the 5th year at the “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest.

The truth that every person is unique from the moment of conception and the joy of women who overcome a pregnancy crisis are the arguments that show that the pro-life attitude and deeds are the future of society.

In Bucharest, the March was organized by the Students for Life Association with the support of the Romania for Life Association.

The concert Live for Life was held after the March, and testimonies were given on stage by public figures, people who had gone through pregnancy crises, supporters of pro-life values. Singers were Robert Patai, Ioana Picoş, Raluca Blejuşcă and Dumitriţa Sinița. Eliza-Maria Cloțea, chairman of the Students for Life Association in Bucharest, Alexandra Nadane, chairman of the Romania for Life Association, Independent MEP Cătălin Ivan, Monica Radu, a mother raising her three children from the wheelchair, Claudia Ilinca, volunteer at the Down Plus Association Bucharest read the message of Georgeta Bucur, chairman of the association, pro-life trainer Lavinia Stan, mother of six children, singer Ozana Barabancea, Dorin Popa, kinetotherapist working with children with disabilities, director Ivona Boitan and actress Manuela Hărăbor.

Some of the organizers’ proposals include:
• establishment of support centers for the woman in pregnancy crisis (in the USA, there are more than three times more centers than abortion clinics, while in Romania we have only about 10);
• granting, starting from the fourth month of pregnancy, a universal allowance for the pregnant woman;
• establishing an adoption procedure starting from pregnancy, following the American and British models.

Bucharest, Romania. The Pro-Life Month 2018: The first Romanian edition of the event “Babies Go to Parliament”, before the March for Life

„Babies Go to Congress” has already become a traditional pro-life advocacy event in the US. Mothers who have been through a pregnancy crisis and are happy to have chosen life for their babies go to the US Congress to be introduced to congressmen.

Studenți pentru Viață (“Students for Life”, a Romanian pro-life students association) organized the first Romanian edition of a similar event on the 20th of March, 2018: “Babies Go to Parliament 2018”.

Three happy women who went through a pregnancy crisis and chose life for their babies were congratulated and encouraged by Daniel Gheorghe, Member of Parliament and host of the event.

Adelina Duduială is 24 de and lives in the central-Romania city of Brașov. When she was 21, in 2015, she became beach wrestling world champion. But before, when she was 16, she had an unplanned pregnancy. The family did not support her (the euphemistic way of saying they threw her out of the house). Yet, she continued to go to school, she continued to practice sport and managed to advance in life, as living proof that a child does not hamper a woman’s life and career.

Andreea Cosmina Hodinescu is a 22 year old mother of two who comes from the northern-Romania city of Rădăuți. She got pregnant when she was 18. She wanted to get an abortion, for lack of support, but she found some doctors who encouraged her to rethink her options. Robert, one of her children, was the incontestable star of the event. He appears in all the pictures, as if saying: “I almost was not born, but here I am in the Parliament of Romania! Thanks, Mom! For all the moms: Be brave just as Mom was!”

Cerasela Soficiu is 27 and comes from Iași. She went through a pregnancy crisis and is now happy to have chosen life for her baby. How did it happen? Like all miracles happen! Her sister received a flyer about “Praesidio” Counselig Center run by ProVita Iași. She knew about her sister’s tribulations, so she gave her the flyer and told her: “Maybe me receiving this is a sign that you should keep this baby”. It was enough to do for her and her child. All the restul smoothly went on aferwards. Cerasela went to Praedisio, where she got support, and is now happy she has chosen life for her baby!

Life trumps movies indeed!

How could Daniel Gheorghe, MP not offer flowers to these three courageous moms? They have chosen life, they have chosen to speak about this and they have chosen to come to Parliament!

The little angels they gave birth to are also grateful to their moms and their gift was actually getting their moms invited to the Parliament.

That was “Babies Go to Parliament 2018”: Joy for Life, gratitude for the women who have been through a pregnancy crisis.

See you at the next edition of the event, “Babies Go to Parlament 2019”! The more, the merrier next year!
