Restrooms are available at the Cathedral and will be open. At Independence Mall there will be Port-a-Potties available along 5th street. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be available. There are limited locations available for public restrooms.




What Covid-19 protocols do you have in place?


We are requesting and requiring that facemasks be worn both inside and outside at all times while participating in these events. Additionally we ask that you stand and march 6 feet socially distanced from people that do not live with you. This is for the safety of all. We request that you do not come if this is too difficult to abide by. We are protesting the deaths of unborn babies, not the wearing of masks of social distancing. Thank you for your cooperation.




What if I am unable to attend but would like to view the events?


Not a problem! We will be live streaming each event! However, we request that you attend in person if possible in order to help protest the million abortions in our area since Roe v. Wade and to stand publicly for the sanctity of life in the womb. Livestream will be available on the Pro-Life Union Facebook page @prolifeunion. You can find links to each of the THREE (3) different event livestreams (The Mass, The March, The Rally) at the top of the page!




What's the goal?


Our goal is to end the silent extermination of our children in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Our hope is that in gathering together we can effectively draw attention to the great tragedy that is the one million lives lost to abortion in the Greater Philadelphia Area since Roe v. Wade in 1973. We envision a Greater Philadelphia with no abortion and we aim to inspire and encourage action, change, and a culture where abortion is unthinkable.





 

The Pro-Life Union uses hope and love for families to serve and accompany others by offering education, alternatives, and public witness that eliminates the need for abortion and euthanasia in Greater Philadelphia.
