On Sunday, Oct. 4, hundreds of communities across the nation again saw what has become an annual tradition this time of year — concerned Christians forming “Life Chains” on sidewalks along highways and major arterials to express a peaceful and prayerful public witness to the value of unborn life.
Among the locations in Oregon was Medford, where 86 people took part on a rain-free, sunny afternoon.
In Oregon, Life Chains also were held in Brookings, Clatskanie, Gold Beach, Roseburg, Salem, Stayton and Pendleton. They also took place in 10 Washington cities; the only southwest Washington location was Chehalis.
One of the largest pro-life social movements in the U.S., Life Chains began in 1987 in California. For more information, go to lilfechain.org
