Freeport, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – January 23 – Stephenson County residents gathered at the County Courthouse to commemorate the 39th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision.
Though there was celebration of the fact that the Northern Illinois Women’s Center (NIWC) in Rockford, Il. has closed permanently, the main focus of the prayers was on repentance for the work left undone by the church that has left America in her current degraded condition. The event closed with a recitation of the Rosary led by PAWS, the prolife action Group from Aquin High School.
Prayers were led by area pastors. The event was conducted by Christopher Clukey of the Stephenson County Right to Life, Board of Directors, with Pastor Mike Sowell of Faith Center Freeport, Pastor Fred Woodruff of The Bridge and Outreach Director Jon Eastlick of Crossroads Community Church in attendance to lead prayer.
