Marches for Life in Chicago and Springfield

March for Life in Chicago
Activists - encouraged by signals that the incoming presidential administration and Republican majority in Congress will tilt federal policy back towards protecting human life - will once again brave the cold in Chicago and Springfield to show their support later this month.

The annual March for Life Chicago will start at 2:00 PM at Chicago's Federal Plaza. After a rally, the attendees will march on a planned one-mile route, returning to the Plaza.

Another March for Life will be held in Springfield Friday the 20th, starting at St Katharine Drexel Parish House on 12th Avenue at 1:30 PM.

Starting at 2 PM on January 22, a Re-commitment to Life rally will be held at the State Capitol.

The marches are held annually near the anniversary Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973.
