From a reader in Chicago:
Chicago “LIFE Mob” Hits the Streets Again
Youth cheer Joe Scheidler and upset pro-abortion rally.
On April 2, 2011, hundreds of pro-life advocates and more than two dozen leaders from all over the country gathered in downtown Chicago for an “Evening of Tribute” to honor Pro-life Action League founder and president, Joseph Scheidler. (www.joescheidlertribute.com)
It was on this occasion, that “pro-choice” abortion supporters in Chicago, organized a protest against Scheidler, who they claim, “works actively to eliminate access to reproductive healthcare and promotes the harassment of patients who enter family planning clinics for a variety of services.”
After hearing about the planned protest against Mr. Scheidler, the young organizers of the famed “Chicago Pro-Life Flash Mob”, once again, took to the streets in what proved to be a poignant reunion for both sides of the issue.
In part one, of this epic video, Joe Scheidler is surprised by a special red-carpet tribute by the “Chicago Life Mob”, as he arrived for his Evening of Tribute, at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza.
Hotel security was less than cordial and was eager to escort the throng of jubilant youth and their yellow balloons out of the hotel parking lot. Security was not so tight later that evening, when ill-meaning persons slashed the tires of vehicles displaying pro-life bumper stickers.
After leaving the hotel premises, the Chicago Life Mob encountered the abortion supporters in an intersection face off, while the Chicago Police divided the two groups. The youth greeted the virulent “pro-choicers” with joyous chants, music, and prayer.
Part two of this video (soon be released) recounts the transformation of downtown Chicago later that evening, when the pro-life youth, joined by many bystanders, marched from the “Magnificent Mile” to Millennium Park, witnessing to the culture of life with contagious exuberance and joy.
