Life Chain is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life Americans standing on a public highway for an hour and a half with signs proclaiming "Abortion Kills Children, Abortion Hurts Women, Jesus Forgives and Heals and other messages.
New sign in 2015: The Pill & IUD Also Kill Children
Christian Voices for Life sponsors Life Chains in Sugar Land, Rosenberg, and on Beltway 8 in SW Houston.
Life Chains have been held each October throughout the U.S. and Canada for over 20 years. (Primary date is the first Sunday of October, alternate dates may be chosen locally.) It is a visual statement of solidarity by our local Christian community that abortion is grievously wrong and that the church Christ founded is opposed to the unmerciful killing of unborn children. It is an opportunity for the participants to join together in prayer for conversion of abortionists and all who defend them, for an end to legal abortion in our nation, and for Gods use of our witness to change hearts in our local community. In 2014, over 1550 cities and towns held Life Chains in over 1700 locations. Approximately 750 people participated in our area.
Next Life Chain: October 29, 2017 2:00 - 3:30 pm
Life Chain is a church-based activity. It is the pastors and other members of each participating church who publicize the event and encourage participation among their members. In your church would like to be involved, please contact us - we would be happy to include you. While this is a Christian-led activity, and some signs refer to Jesus and Lord, members of any faith, or of no faith, who wish to join us in a witness proclaiming the truth about abortion are welcome to participate.
Individuals who wish to participate on their own are of course also welcome.
