Pro-lifers overflow Springfield’s Capitol Rotunda
On Wednesday, March 20, thousands filled the Springfield Capitol to protest abortion bills. Several reports were published throughout the state, but one in particular stood out to prolifers: an account by Rebecca Anzel, Capitol News Illinois, as published in the Rockford Register Star (click here).
People were brought to the Capitol by bus from across the state. According to another report, shortly after the midday rally in the capitol rotunda in Springfield kicked off, Secretary of State Police, which guard the entrances to the capitol, closed the building down, "due to concerns with overcrowding." Once Capitol Police were able to direct the crowd to other areas within the building, the doors were reopened.”
