Thousands marched through downtown Chicago this afternoon in the 10th annual March for Life.
Chicago’s new Archbishop Blase Cupich was there marching right along with them.
There were politicians, church leaders and families from not only Illinois, but also Wisconsin and Indiana for the march -- as well as a small pro-choice group.
They started Sunday afternoon at Federal plaza, with prayers and a call to reverse Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal.
From the Federal Plaza they chanted and marched through downtown -- at times the expected pro-life crowd of 3,500-plus stretched three blocks. The march ended with another rally outside the Thompson Center.
A smaller but vocal pro-choice group held its own rally across the street. And while they may have shared the same city streets, their messages couldn’t have been more different.
