The March for Life Chicago is expected to be the largest pro-life gathering in the Midwest. Among the speakers are a co-owner of the Chicago Bears, a former Planned Parenthood director, Archbishop of Chicago and the Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism.
The 2018 March for Life Chicago will draw large crowds (currently estimated to be 6,000 +) of pro-life advocates from across Illinois and the Midwest. On Sunday, January 14, 2018, people from all walks of life will come together on Chicago’s Federal Plaza to proclaim the sanctity of human life and call for an end to abortion as they march through the Loop beginning at 2 p.m. CST.
Archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich and the Chicago Bears’ co-owner Pat McCaskey are among the featured speakers.
March for Life Chicago Board of Directors President Dawn Fitzpatrick explained that the peaceful march through the streets of Chicago is a reminder that people of Illinois and throughout the Midwest desire to change the societal perception of abortion.
“Killing a child in the womb is never a viable answer. Abortion is not an acceptable solution to any problem. We believe that ‘Love Saves Lives’ and that is our theme for this year’s March. We call upon religious, civic and community leaders to renew every effort to build a nation and culture dedicated to protecting life at every stage and eliminating the violence of abortion,” stated Fitzpatrick. “Thousands of individuals and groups will come together on January 14 to proclaim that our women, men, children and families deserve better than abortion.”
