‘Life Chain’ planned for Sunday

Press Release

On Sunday afternoon (Oct. 4), National Life Chain Sunday 2009 will occupy sidewalks in more than 1,400 Canadian and U.S. cities as defenders of human life seek God’s help to end the legalized killing of pre-born children and the elderly.
Participation is dependent on pastors who deem abortion perilous to any nation and who, with humility and boldness, lead their worshippers to a time of solemn prayer, meditation, and public witness.
After four decades of pro-life efforts, we have seen no serious decline in annual abortions (surgical and chemical), and today people realize the enormity of the problem in protecting pre-born children and other vulnerable groups.
While only a small step into pro-life activism, “Life Chain” is a serious step that tests our concern.
It follows a strict code of conduct, is peaceful, and urges all family members—young and old—to attend.
Pastors may add prayer topics to those listed on the back of “Life Chain” signs.
In Fort Frances, signs can be picked up at the corner of Scott Street and Victoria Avenue on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
Participants are asked to stand for one hour on the north side of Scott Street and extend eastward, spacing themselves at least 10 feet apart, holding their pro-life signs, and praying for protection for the unborn as well as for the elderly and infirm to be safe from the threat of euthanasia.
