March For Life Chicago's 10th anniversary: Midwest pro-life advocates proclaim sanctity of human life

CHICAGO, Jan. 5, 2015 /Christian Newswire --

The 10th Anniversary of the March for Life Chicago, on Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 2 p.m. (Central), will share multiple perspectives of the pro-life stand against abortion. Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, Congressmen Dan Lipinski and Peter Roskam, and multi-generation advocate families, will lead the call to end abortion in Illinois and proclaim the sanctity of all human life. A notable line up of speakers will mark with sadness the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States, including former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson, Dr. Erwin Lutzer of The Moody Church, and the iconic "godfather" of the pro-life movement, Joe Scheidler.

Over 3,000 participants from Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana are expected to amass on Chicago's Federal Plaza and march through the Loop to the James R. Thompson Center. There will be rallies at both the March for Life assembly point and the destination.

"The March for Life Chicago message is one of love and hope," stated Emily Zender, president of March for Life Chicago. "This occasion affirms the authentic dignity of women, celebrates the gift of children, and promotes a culture dedicated to protecting life at every stage of development. March for Life Chicago joins events across the country from Washington DC to San Francisco to proclaim that all lives matter and declare that it is time to end abortion in America."

WHAT: 10th annual March for Life Chicago

WHEN: Sunday, January 18, 2015, from 2 to 4 p.m. (Central)

WHO: Thousands of individuals and pro-life groups from Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana

WHERE: Assembling at Federal Plaza, 50 W Adams, Chicago, MAP: http://goo.gl/maps/Zu1lI, and marching to James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph, Chicago, MAP
