Planned Parenthood is at it’s weakest hour in decades and about to face almost 1,000,000 demonstrators world wide in the 28th Annual LifeChain.
Annually, 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 across from a Planned Parenthood center and pray for 90 minutes, while holding pro-life signs.
In 2014, 1550 cities and towns held Life Chains in the U.S. as well as hundreds of cities in Canada.
Life Chain was started in 1987 by Please Let Me Live, a pro-life ministry based 45 miles north of Sacramento, CA. They started the first chains in Yuba City and Marysville with over 2000 people.
In 1989, Bakersfield took LIFE CHAIN into Southern, CA with 7,500 participants, and Riverside, CA followed with 6,000 in attendance. In 1990, Orange County, CA increased participation to 17,000, while Fresno, CA had 10,000, San Diego 28,000, and Sacramento 16,500.
From 1994 through 2002, approximately 900 Life Chains were built annually in North America; and while attendance declined significantly during those years, prayer increased substantially.
1993 saw over 900 Life Chains built in America and Canada, but attendance taking was discontinued due to our excessive preoccupation with numbers and a lack of emphasis on prayer.
This is a year that should see some great enthusiasm in the project.
Planned Parenthood is already reeling from the disclosure of multiple undercover videos exposing the horrific atrocities involved with illegally selling baby parts.
They are also facing the survivors of botched abortions testifying in front of congress.
Now in 3 weeks, Planned Parenthood will face the power of prayer.
LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 90 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion.
It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
