CHICAGO, April 21, 2014 /On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, the entrance to Navy Pier will be the site of a protest of those who use their civic and business stature to promote abortion. Meanwhile, the Grand Ballroom at Illinois’ top family attraction will host a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain. The Pro-Life Action League’s protest will confront Billionaire Susan Pritzker, former NBC Chicago reporter Renee Ferguson, Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong and all Planned Parenthood’s guests with the truth about abortion.
Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League, explained the focus of the gathering outside of the abortion party. “As pro-life advocates we are here to ask one question of the honorary co-chair of Planned Parenthood’s gala, Susan Pritzker, and all those giving money to the abortion giant,” he said. “Why not put your money to work offering real help to families in need, rather than supporting an organization that will charge them $500 each to abort their children?”
What: A Pro-Life protest of Planned Parenthood’s Generations Gala
When: Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at 5 p.m. (Central)
Where: Chicago’s Navy Pier, beginning at Illinois Street, one block east of Lake Shore Drive, Chicago Map: https://goo.gl/maps/dKdOa
Who: Pro-Life Action League and concerned citizens
What: Protest to bring attention to the profit-driven abortion industry’s disregard for the well-being and safety of women and children
Why: Americans who value the sanctity of human life wish to confront Planned Parenthood’s well-heeled donors with the grisly reality of exactly what they’re supporting. The protest message will point to the truth about abortion.
“It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood, which aborts more than 900 children every single day, is coming to Navy Pier right between the ‘Pictures with the Bunny’ and a Radio Disney event,” offered Scheidler. “As one of Chicago’s premier family entertainment venues, Navy Pier might wish to rethink scheduling this shameful organization for future events.”
