400 March Against Abortion Saturday in Palatine

The group started at St. Theresa Church and walked to Volunteer Plaza Saturday in preparation for the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Tuesday, the 'Daily Herald' Reports.

The 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade is Tuesday, January 22, and a group of 400 people marched Saturday from St. Theresa Church to Volunteer Plaza to take a stand against abortion, the Daily Herald reports. 

Before the march organized by the Pro-Life Action League began, speakers told stories of how abortion has affected their lives, according to the Daily Herald, and the participants headed to the plaza carrying signs that said "Honk if you love babies."

No killing of embriyos before they are born.

I love babies AND support a woman's right to choice. It's not an either/or situation!

If you don't want an abortion, don't have one. Do not take away my right to choose based on my health and personal circumstances. Thank goodness a living woman or girl still has more rights than someone that doesn't even exist.

It's not about loving babiess. Women should have the right to choose. If you don't believe in Abortion then you aren't forced to have one. These people also have a right to march, but they're just annoying.

Just think If these 400 people adopted the unwanted,abused and babies born with drugs in their system..They might help start a pattern of change with poverty and social issues...NAW makes to much sense what was I thinking...just keep on marching so maybe one day you can tell me what to do...

If you upset about the Sandy Hook shooting & you should be. Take the 20 kids that died there, multiply by 54,500 and that is how many kids have been killed by abortion. Abortionist also target minority neighborhoods.

It's not a kid. It's not a baby. It's an unwanted blob, a few cells growing like a cancer that can only turn into a baby if the carrier decides to let it grow. Follow your religious beliefs all you want for yourself,. But keep your religion out of my government. These marches don't change minds, they just make a lot of people who believe in freedom angry.
