The Illinois News Network reports so many people showed up for the peaceful pro-life rally that police temporarily closed access to the capitol due to “overcrowding.”
Photos on Illinois Right to Life’s Facebook page show pro-lifers packed in the capitol rotunda. The pro-life group said more people stood outside the building because they could not get inside.
“There is widespread outcry from the people of Illinois against these extreme anti-women and anti-children bills since they were introduced a month ago,” said Mary Kate Knorr of Illinois Right to Life Action, prior to the rally. “Residents from all corners of Illinois are expressing outrage at this proposed legislation, which disregards the health and safety of women.”
