Thousands of People Lined the Streets in Over 1600 Cities to Tell North Americans “Abortion Kills Children”
Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside despite COVID-19 and the weather on Sunday, October 4, 2020 to pray for unborn babies and their mothers.
Peaceful witnessing is a key part of the Life Chain. The events typically are held along busy roadways in the communities where pro-lifers hold signs that raise awareness about unborn babies, pregnancy resources and more.
The local news outlets noted that the Life Chains were peaceful, respectful events.
Every year, nearly 900,000 unborn children are killed in legal abortions in America, and organizers said the Life Chains are one small step toward ending the violence.
“From the very young to the very old, life We’re here to fight a battle,” organizer Karen Hamrick said. “We’re not political, but our battle is fought in the heavenly because we’re not warring against flesh and blood…We’re using the best weapon that there is and that is prayer.”
The Life Chain began more than 30 years ago in California, and quickly grew into a national and international event with communities in Canada and the United States participating.
While Life Chains are promoted as religious, prayer-oriented events, organizers said they also welcome non-religious pro-lifers to participate. Participants are encouraged to pray and/or solemnly reflect on the violence of abortion in a public place where they can witness to the truth about abortion in their community.
More than 61 million unborn babies have been aborted legally in the United States since 1973.
