Life Advocacy Day with the Respect Life Office

On Wednesday, March 4, the Archdiocese of Chicago will send a delegation of folks to Springfield to meet with Congressional Representatives for what we call a "Life Advocacy Day."  We will focus on two bills that are on their way to committee in the near future.  The issues are this:  (1) A bill will be presented that will require an abortion provider to offer to show the image of a child in the womb during an ultrasound to the mother who is considering abortion.  We are, of course are in support of this bill,  and (2) A bill will be presented that will effectively prevent a health care provider to ever invoke their right of conscience when treating patients (e.g., abortion, prescribing contraceptives, etc).  We, of course, are against this bill.

Please join us on this day!  We need to be heard in Springfield!  We will meet at 6 AM on Wednesday, March 4th.  Transportation and lunch will be provided for a $20 donation.  See the attached flyer for more details.  Call the Respect Life Office at 312-534-5355 to sign-up to go with us!

God Bless!
