SPOTLIGHT: Chicago March for Life 2020

Written by David E. Smith

A January storm system featuring heavy rain and flooding, strong winds, and the dreaded wintry mix was not enough to deter the more than 9,000 people who assembled in downtown Chicago for the annual March for Life. As a warm-up to the actual march, this group of dedicated pro-life warriors gathered for a very spirited rally at Daley Plaza.

This edition of Spotlight enables you to experience the enthusiasm and passion of the rally (or relive it, if you were present at Daley Plaza), as we present some of the speeches from the event. Featured speakers include Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League; Dawn Fitzpatrick with the Archdiocese of Chicago; the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod; a client of Aid for Women; a university student leader with WeDignify; Cardinal Blase Cupich; Dr.  Karen Deighan, MD, an obstetrics & gynecology specialist; Congressman Dan Lipinski of Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District; Patrick McCaskey of the Chicago Bears; and Claire Culwell, abortion survivor and national pro-life speaker.

The rally can be viewed in its entirety on the IFI YouTube channel.
