March for Life Chicago 2017
Sunday, January 15, 2017. 2pm – 4pm Central
Federal Plaza 50 W. Adams Street, Chicago
We are an annual public event composed of people from diverse ethnic, social, and religious backgrounds dedicated to defending & protecting all human life.
WHY WE MARCH:
We mark with deep sadness the great tragedy of the legalization of abortion in the United States along with the devastating social, moral, and legal consequences that have followed. Marching together in hope, we call upon religious, civic, and community leaders to renew every effort to build a nation that affirms the authentic dignity of women, the gift of children, and a culture dedicated to protecting life at every stage of development in law and love.
