From 1975 (year of the French abortion law, called Veil law) to 1988 (year of the founding of La Trêve de Dieu, the yearly figure of abortions progressively grew in France. Actually,that law set up an incitement to murder and rendered it commonplace, despite denials written as a lure in the #1 item of the Veil law and also despite numerous pro-life activities, and the pro-lifer got discouraged.

Beside the necessary works related to helping the women tempted by abortion, France missed an active and efficient pressure group, able to influence the laws through lawful means, and an original action mode, not yet already experienced by other groups. Of course without forgetting the essential objective: to soften the hardened hearts and to wake up the consciences asleep.

La Trêve de Dieu was created on the occasion of the Pope's visit in Strasbourg in October 1988. It was calling for the mercy upon the children threatened by abortion, during the four days of his visit, in all the abortion facilities of Alsace and Lorraine. It was a historical reference to the truce of God launched during the Middle Age by the Church which obtained, only through its moral authority to limit, and, slowly, to reduce the disasters generated by the feudal wars.
