On March 25, the International Day of Life is celebrated, a date before which mobilizations usually take place in various countries in defense of the right to life from conception.
This celebration had its origin in 2003 at an International Provida Congress held in Madrid, after a large consultation between various Pro-Life movements in Europe and America. Prior to that year, the date had been celebrated for the first time with mobilizations in El Salvador in 1993, extending later to other countries of Spanish America in which the pro-life movement is very active, such as Argentina and Chile. Nowadays, the mobilizations continue to denounce the attacks on the right to life, especially the legalization of abortion but also euthanasia.
