March for Life 2019
Calls for action, bi-partisan unity, and compassion came
from the podium at the Sunday, January 13, March For Life
Chicago 2019. The downtown rally drew over 8,000 thousand
pro-life advocates to the
U.S Congressmen from Illinois, Dan Lipinski (D-Western Springs) and Darin LaHood (R-Peoria), took the stage together, urging the crowd to continue advocating for life. “There is nothing more important than protecting life,” declared Lipinski. “Science shows us life begins at conception. We’ll keep working and fighting until there are no more abortions,” he promised.
LaHood stressed the importance of anti-abortion legislation, noting, “Every single day that we’re in Washington DC, we look to do everything we can to stand up for life and the unborn.”
Chicago Archbishop, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich applauded the event’s theme, Unique From Day One.

Listen to the abortion clinic employee! At the end of the conversation (8:41) she says, "Alrighty then!" as if she has simply scheduled a dental cleaning. One must have $17,000 ready to hand over to the assassin to murder their child...and rest assured that black market organ dealers are standing in line to buy the child's organs and body parts. Now we see why Obamacare is so important. Who can … More …

Wow! This video shows exactly how much of a liar Indian
activist Nathan Phillips is. Phillips lied from
beginning to end about the event at the Lincoln Memorial
and he continues to lie and defame the Covington
students. He lied about being a Vietnam vet too and is
now trying to pretend he never said he was. Well,
you live in the digital age. You can lie, but the
truth will come out ...

|Savannah Dudzik, Woodstock North High School:|
Savannah has shown herself to be an exemplary advocatefor the defense of human life. Inspired by her dad at a young age, she has been very active. As a member of the Mime for Life Performance Troop, Savannah excelled in her roles as performer, discussion leader, and director. This is a mime performance, put on by local teens, that travels around the county to schools, youth groups, and retreats. They use non-verbal communication to portray real-life stories of two girls who find themselves in crisis pregnancies and the pressures of whether or not to choose life for their babies. After this performance, the teen audience joins in small group discussions to address how each person can contribute to promoting a culture of life. The Mimes for Life have impacted so many young peoples’ perspective on this topic, without even saying a word.
Savannah has Marched for Life in Chicago with thousands of pro-lifers in the cold and Marched for life in Washington D.C. among the hundreds of thousands of people, who annually show up to defend the right to life.
She uses her domestic talents by crocheting hearts with words of encouragement for girls in crisis pregnancies and follows up with crocheting booties for the babies born!
Her courage and conviction have carried into her days at Woodstock North. Through projects and papers such as reciting a pro-life speech by Mother Theresa, doing a power point presentation as an opponent of Roe v. Wade and welcoming discussion on the topic, she has portrayed her views that all human life should be protected. She has proven to be unafraid to engage discussion with her peers and teachers on this subject and has done so respectfully and concisely while maintaining her belief in the value of human life.
Savannah has brought baby bottles to school to collect money to donate to crisis pregnancy centers and has been a member of Best Buddies where she and other Best Buddy members assist fellow students with special needs
Furthermore, during her junior year, on an organized Day of Silence, a type of bullying awareness day, Savannah brought attention to the unborn babies who never got their voice as they were bullied out of their chance at life. On that day, Savannah wore a red sign with the word LIFE on it and handed these signs out to others who were willing to wear one for the day.
And finally, Savannah prays. She has prayed along roadsides and she has spiritually adopted unborn babies.
Savannah’s views on the issue of life are not just a political standpoint or a religious conviction; they are a way of life! In college she plans to start a pro-life club and plans to make her goal in life to speak out for the rights of all who are marginalized, be it the unborn, elderly, or anywhere in between.
|Christina Shugrue, Crystal Lake South High School|
Christina has shown herself to be an exemplary advocate for the defense of human life. Skeptical of the celebrity and political voices on social media, Christina made the efforts to educate herself on this topic to form her own opinion. That she did! Since then she has had countless discussions with folks on both sides of the issue proving to be unafraid to engage discussion with her peers. Christina has shown great maturity in realizing the sensitivity of this topic, recognizing it as something she wanted to be well versed in before speaking out about it. At school she has engaged classmates in discussion, even while chatting on the outside track during gym class!
In our community through her youth group, she was given the responsibility for learning and leading discussion about the 40 Film, a documentary film that embraces a diverse cast of perspectives in defense of the unborn.
On social media, she has taken the opportunity to articulate her views and has done so respectfully and concisely while maintaining her belief in the value of human life. Also, on social media she has promoted the message further by encouraging folks, no matter what their views are, to keep an open mind and go see the movie, Unplanned.
In her time at school and in the community, Christina had demonstrated great courage in defending life to other teenagers, leading with kindness and compassion even to those who were hostile to her message.
As she moves forward into her college years, she plans to attend the March for Life in Chicago and will get involved with Students for Life on campus. She hopes to one day give her own pro-life talk to educate others on this topic.

Danielle held high a bright hand written sign that read “A TRUE FEMINIST WOULD FIGHT FOR THE RIGHTS OF UNBORN WOMEN”

As the president of the International Right to Life Federation, I frequently travel around the world. Literally, wherever I go, people ask me about LifeSiteNews. They are familiar with the daily email publication and website and want to know if it provides reliable information on the life issues.I’m happy to tell them that in the past I have served on the board of directors of LifeSiteNews, primarily because they do provide accurate, up-to-the minute information.
