“All human life — from the moment of conception and through all subsequent stages — is sacred, because human life is created in the image and likeness of God. Nothing surpasses the greatness or dignity of a human person.”
Saint John Paul II

THE TRAGIC NUMBERS
Over 57-million unborn babies have been victims of abortion in the United States since its legalization in 1973 — that’s 1.3-million babies each year or 3,600 babies each day killed by abortion in the United States.
In Cook County, Illinois, 1 out of 4 pregnancies ends in abortion. In 2014, 21,511 babies were victims of abortion — that’s 59 abortions each day or one baby aborted every 24 minutes in Cook County.
