WHO: Pro-Life Action League and concerned citizens
WHY: The Pro-Life Action League has coordinated Face the Truth Tours in Rockford for ten years, and according to Eric Scheidler, Executive Director, will continue organizing these public education tours. “The Face the Truth Tours work. Every year people stop to thank us for sharing the reality of abortion because it caused them to reconsider a planned abortion or begin the healing process from a past abortion,” said Scheidler. He added, “Last year a woman came up to us and said that she had an abortion 12 years ago, and that at the time, she felt she had no choice. She told us, ‘I keep looking at your picture, and I can’t believe I did that to my baby…nobody told me it was a baby.'”
