#ProLifeGoodFriday rally details emerge for Chicago, Illinois areas

As Christians worldwide mark the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, April 3, 2015, Chicago area residents will engage in prayer and meditation with the Pro-Life Action League in The Way of the Cross to commemorate the deaths of the 57 million  children lost to abortion since its legalization in 1973. The somber gatherings will take place in Chicago, as well as west suburban Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Wood Dale, and Aurora, on the Christian holy day.

“It a natural connection,” explained Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League. “Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins and these babies have died because of our sins – the sins of declaring them as unwanted, inconvenient, or without value.”
