Life Chain to Stand Sunday

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — In remembrance of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, Pro-Life advocates will once again take to the streets to silently voice their opinions in the annual Life Chain, Sunday, October 3, from noon until 1 p.m.

On the first Sunday in October, Life Chain invites the churches in each city and town across North America to stand on a designated local sidewalk and pray for one hour, while holding approved pro-life signs.

The local event is represented by several local churches. Outside Shelbyville, churches in Mattoon, Tower Hill, Pana and beyond will take part in the national event which this year will mark 37 years since the landmark decision.

The National Life Chain organization advises, “During the Life Chain hour, idle chatter, frivolity, and both verbal and physical responses to motorists are strongly discouraged. Life Chain is a time for prayerful self-analysis, repentance, and serious commitment to helping end abortion in our nation.”
