Pro-life activists protesting Chicago's attempt to kill free speech rights outside abortion clinics

Proposed "bubble zone" would prohibit pro-lifers from coming within eight feet of any person approaching an abortion facility

When: Wednesday, October 7

9:00 am - Protest starts
9:30 am - Media conference

Chicago abortionists, led by Planned Parenthood, are pushing the Chicago City Council to adopt a new "bubble zone" ordinance, which would make sidewalk counseling nearly impossible in Chicago

The Pro-Life Action League has organized a protest at City Hall to send a message to Chicago's leaders that stopping their free speech with an unconstitutional ordinance is unacceptable.

Where: Chicago City Hall , 121 N. LaSalle Street

Who: Over 100 protesters expected to be outside City Halls with picket signs

A press conference organized by the Pro-Life Action League will include the following speakers:

Joe Scheidler, National Director, Pro-Life Action League

Shannon Buckner, Sidewalk counselor at Planned Parenthood

Catherine Mieding, Sidewalk counselor at Family Planning Associates

Myra, statement from mother who decided against abortion because of pro-life sidewalk counselors and is grateful for the life of her child

Peter Breen, attorney with Thomas More Society, defenders of the First Amendment Rights of pro-life activists
