“The pro-abortion forces in our nation now seem to cling all the more tenaciously to their shrinking political and legal turf only to reflect the building power and momentum of our pro-life movement. Nowhere is that any more evident than here in our beleaguered State of Illinois, very largely owing to the recent hard work and illustrious achievements of our Illinois Right to Life.”Tom BrejchaPresident & Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society, Chicago, IL.
