.- Today marks the annual National Life Chain Sunday, during which pro-life Americans will, for the 20th year, line sidewalks in over 1,300 cities and towns to seek God's forgiveness and His help to end abortion and related evils in our culture. Participants will hold signs that include Abortion Kills Children; Adoption: The Loving Option; Lord, Forgive Us and Our Nation; and Abortion Hurts Women.

Royce Dunn, the Director of Life Chain, calls it "a peaceful witness against a violent public enemy that has terrorized and killed probably well over 100 million preborn Americans and Canadians at surgical abortion clinics and through abortifacient birth control.”

Dunn also pointed to the need for educating and motivating more people to defend the children who are in danger of being aborted, "God declared that 'My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge [Hosea 4:6].' That truth is for today, when we the church--the preborns' only hope for an advocate and defender--are disgraced by our casual response to their horror and loss."

Life Chain welcomes everyone who deems human life sacred. Over 13,000 Chains have been built in North America, plus Chains in several other nations. Life Chain is but one step into a serious pro-life commitment. Much intensive follow-up is required to close the death centers, said the organizers of the National Life Chain.
