This summer the Pro-Life Action League will sponsor the Joseph M. Scheidler Memorial Face the Truth Tour from Friday, June 18th through Saturday, June 26th. Participants will visit sites throughout the Chicago area, holding pictures of beautiful unborn babies along with signs showing the victims of abortion.

We are rallying together, working to unite, combining our time, treasure, and talent for a common cause. Please join us!
