The Chicago flash mob phenomenon is a bright new sign of the varied dynamism of the new youth pro-life movements growing everywhere. The St. John Cantius group has been especially outstanding with their unabashedly positive, super energetic and brightly colored flash mob chant routines.

At the 2011 Washington March for Life we took some video of their creative routines. I wish we had taken far more.The video gives you only a brief glimpse of what they do. There was much more and some that was more dramatic than what was filmed. I have never seen anything like this group. They are making very big waves for pro-life and showing the public where the future really lies - with the pro-life families, youth and associated communities and movements..
