On Sunday afternoon, October 7, Right to Life of Southwest Indiana will host the annual Life Chain. Life Chain is a silent prayer vigil to protect life and oppose abortion. The Life Chain supporters will gather at Brinker’s Jewelers parking lot at the corner of Green River and the Lloyd Expressway for free refreshments and to pick up signs beginning at 1 p.m. The silent prayer vigil is from 1:30-2:30 p.m. All those who support Life are invited to stand on Green River Road sidewalks beginning at the Lloyd Expressway and going south to Lincoln Avenue.
This is the 31th year of public witness on behalf of rejected Preborn Children; and Life Chain will fill the sidewalks in over 1,500 cities and towns in the U.S. and Canada. It is an opportunity for people to unite in prayer and to stand up for the rights of the unborn. They will stand in honor of the more than 60 million children whose lives have been lost to abortion in our country since 1973. Every year young moms report choosing life for their unborn children over abortion after reading the signs and seeing the people praying at the Life Chain.
According to Mary Ellen Van Dyke, Executive Director of Right to Life of Southwest Indiana, “Supporters of unborn babies and their moms will stand together respectfully and prayerfully to honor the sanctity of life. This year with all the attacks against the sanctity of human life, conscience and religious freedom, many prayers are needed.”
Supporters of Life will hold signs that say:
- ABORTION KILLS CHILDREN
- JESUS FORGIVES AND HEALS
- ADOPTION: THE LOVING OPTION
- LORD, FORGIVE US AND OUR NATION
- ABORTION HURTS WOMEN
- PRAY TO END ABORTION
- LIFE—THE FIRST INALIENABLE RIGHT
- DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD
The Life Chain follows a strict Code of Conduct, is peaceful, and family members, young and old are invited to attend. Everyone who believes in the protection of unborn children and their mothers is welcome to participate.
Right to Life of Southwest Indiana with 50,000 supporters protects life. We exist to protect the right to life of innocent human life from fertilization to natural death.
