Dear Brother Knights, Lovely Ladies, and Right to Life Friends:

As we prepare for the decision from the Supreme Court, Illinois will likely not be among the 26 states certain or likely to ban abortions. The highest courts in Illinois have recognized the right to an abortion under the state constitution, ensuring abortion access will remain protected following a decision from the Supreme Court.

As Brother Knights and Pro-life Americans, we will face these challenges in our communities and it will require a renewed state-wide commitment to a culture of LIFE in support of mothers and children, from conception to natural death.

If we expect to have change, we must stand together with other pro-life organizations to institute laws to bring about that change. We will need to educate our citizens and visitors to Illinois and proactively let our voices be heard.

Illinois Knights will be participating in the Knights on Bridges for Life statewide campaign on March 18 - 27, 2022. I prayerfully ask all councils and members to pick up a banner for LIFE to educate and gain public support. The documents needed for the March campaign are included here. Please order your banners today and start your planning now to participate on one or all the days.

As Knights, we are all on the journey of a lifetime together, as role models in a world that needs men who lead, serve, protect and defend LIFE.

We can make a difference and we MUST make Illinois pro-life again. It all starts with YOU as the key to winning Illinois for LIFE.

With prayers and best wishes for all that you do for LIFE.
