Unique From Day One
On Sunday, January 13, we joined 6,000 pro-lifers from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Ohio and Missouri, for the Chicago March for Life. ‘Unique From Day One’ was the theme and is the same for the national March for Life which will be held in Washington DC on Friday, January 18.
Before the march Cardinal Cupich addressed us. “It’s a march for today and through time…This year’s theme, ‘Unique From Day One,’ is so appropriate. Not only believers, but scientists, tell us that if we want to have a sense of awe and wonder in our world, all we need to do is to look at the little lives being knit together daily in their mothers’ wombs.”
National March for Life Education and Defense Fund president Jeanne Mancini and Radiance Foundation president Ryan Bomberger were keynote speakers, and we also heard comments from Chicago Bears co-owner Pat McCaskey, Reps. Darin LaHood and Dan Lipinski.
The vision of the March for Life is ‘A world where the beauty and dignity of every human life are valued and protected’. We couldn’t agree more and were proud to be able to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
