Despite frigid temperatures, record numbers of people came out to march against abortion Sunday at Chicago’s 2018 March for Life.

More than 6,000 people gathered at the march, marking the largest pro-life gathering in the Midwest to date.

“This March for Life Chicago drew people of all ages, from across the Midwest,” said Dawn Fitzpatrick, president of March for Life Chicago’s board of directors, according to a TC Public Relations press release. “They are from all walks of life, but they have one thing in common, they know that love saves lives and that abortion is one of our culture’s gravest ills.”

Chicago Bears co-owner Pat McCaskey kicked off the march with music from the Carmel High School Marching Band from Mundelein, Illinois.

“The deadliest thing in the world is indifference,” Ramona Trevino, the keynote speaker and a former Planned Parenthood manager, told the onlooking crowd. Trevino added that pro-lifers must use love to counter the forces that make it possible for Planned Parenthood to perform more than 300,000 abortions a year. The march also featured remarks from Chicago’s archbishop, U.S. congressmen, and Illinois legislators.

“[Teens] are being groomed as future abortion patients because Planned Parenthood promotes a promiscuous lifestyle,” Trevino recently told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an exclusive interview.

“We’re not discouraging them from having sex at a young age. We have monthly quotas to meet. They’re just numbers,” she said.

Trevino worked as the manager of a Planned Parenthood abortion referral facility in Sherman, Texas, for three years before leaving in 2011.

Chicago will host a Women’s March focusing on women’s reproductive rights and abortion access Saturday, according to WGN9 News.
