“Participating in the 2015 March for Life Chicago was the first time in my life that I ever publicly protested the legalization of abortion. Thanks to Illinois Right to Life, I got to stand up for what I believe in with other people that hold my same values. It was an incredibly inspiring experience, and today I am more pro-life than ever before because of the March for Life Chicago.”Steven T.
