The following is a news release from Christian NewsWire:

For location and time in cities and towns (over 1500) throughout  the U.S. and Canada, see

On Sunday afternoon, October 4,  Life Chains will again occupy U.S. and Canadian sidewalks. There we will pray and witness on behalf of voiceless fellow citizens—the precious Preborns imperiled by surgical mutilation and abortive birth controls. Each participant will hold a Life message (sign), and will again post the location and time of each Chain.

Why build Life Chains? Each Chain is a prayerful, public testimony for God to anoint and work through to impact hearts and lives. Life Chains continue (our 28th year) because the children continue to die. The earth’s gravest injustice pursues them, and they die for want of defenders.

On October 4, let us remember the videos God produced through the Center for Medical Progress. The abhorrent “face of abortion” was revealed through the deceptive and barbarous mind of Planned Parenthood. But God revealed more. To the church in America, Canada, and the other Western nations, especially, He revealed, as noted above, the horrid evil that we have shielded for decades evil that He commanded us to “expose” and “hate.”

On National Life Chain Sunday, let us implore God to anchor within us a deep hatred for abortion and to grow within us fervent compassion for vulnerable Preborns.  Pastors who lead in that endeavor will be of enormous value to pro-life.
