A dozen stalwart members of the Pro-Life Action League launched the 2007 Face the Truth Tour in the face of ravaging, icy winds in downtown Chicago on Spy Wednesday, April 4. On Spy Wednesday the Church remembers the treachery of Judas Iscariot, who launched his plot to betray Jesus on a Wednesday.
Our Tour began with an “early bird” site at Madison Street and Wacker Drive, with wave after wave of commuters from the nearby rail stations facing the undeniable truth of what abortion does to an unborn baby.
Pro-Abort Blogs about the Tour
One of those commuters was a blogger named Kai who posted a negative commentary on the Truth Day entitled “Fetus Day.” Calling the pro-lifers “crazies,” she declared, “You are not going to make me decide Roe v. Wade is blasphemous because you made me retch in my coffee this morning.” I attempted to respond to this blogger and explain our mission, but was blocked from doing so.

The morning concluded with a chilly site along Lake Shore Drive at Buckingham Fountain. Our entire group was grateful to have been called to make such an important Holy Week witness for the sanctity of life.

Face the Truth Days will continue through the spring, and the annual Face the Truth Summer Tour will be held throughout northern Illinois July 7-14 with sites in Chicago, Rockford, Joliet, Naperville and elsewhere. Mark your calendar and plan to join us!
