Since the very first Life Chain in 1987 in Yuba City, California, pro-lifers have gathered annually for one hour along roadways and at intersections to pray and hold signs with varying pro-life messages. The 2021 Life Chain took place at around 270 locations in Canada, with the majority of communities participating on Sunday, October 3. Campaign Life Coalition reported that this is the greatest number of Life Chains in recent years. While attendance has not rebounded to pre-COVID levels, it did improve from 2020. Josie Luetke, Youth Coordinator for Campaign Life Coalition and a Life Chain Canada committee member said in a press release, “Political change also requires cultural and spiritual change.” She called Life Chain, “a reminder to all of Canada that no matter who’s in government, no matter what other problems we face, COVID-19 included, while the killing of the innocent continues, there is a movement that will stand against it.” Campaign Life Coalition thanked all who organized or participated in a Life Chain, or prayed for the success of this event. The 2022 Life Chain will be on Sunday, October 2.
