Volunteers of different anti-abortion from different international organisations joined thousands of girls of various schools and colleges in a rally holding placards and raising slogans to spread awareness regarding 'save the girl child' in Coimbatore on Thursday.
"We are here in India to stand with the women of India. But the affect of abortion is not only in India but around the world. There are 10 million abortions in India, five million girl children are aborted every year India. India is gravely impacted but it is not the only nation, it's in every nation of the world," said Cindy Colins, a foreigner participant.
"There are 50 million abortions around the world every year. Over 1 million abortions in the United States, one in three women has had an abortion. It is time for the women of the nations to speak up and let their voices be heard," Colins added
Volunteers of different anti-abortion organisations from Germany, Italy, United States, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa, Romania and Scotland took part in the rally.
"We are here for a march for life. We are here because girl children are being aborted, parents don't have money to let them go to schools. But we say don't abort girls because they also have future, give them school and they will have good job," said Niskata, another foreigner participant.
