Rockford's Pro-Life Initiative Protest Abortion

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford's only abortion clinic has been closed for more than a year and a half. And pro-life supporters are continuing their mission to share their beliefs with parents about the medical procedure.

Members of the Pro-Life Action League and Rockford Pro-Life Initiative came together for the annual "Face the Truth Tour. We caught up with them Wednesday morning at the intersection of Riverside and Alpine in Rockford.

Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-Life Action League, says while the signs can be a bit graphic, the feedback they are receiving has changed.

"We have noticed this year much more of a positive response from people. Much less negativity, much less anger, much less swearing, much fewer rude jesters," Scheidler said.

The group also held protests Wednesday afternoon along East State Street.
