Life chain event Saturday in Trail

This year Life Chain will take place in Trail Saturday at 1 p.m. and in Castlegar and Nelson at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Canada is the only democratic country with no law governing abortion. In 1988 the Supreme Court ruled that it was up to Parliament to pass legislation regarding preborn life. Science proves that a baby developing in the womb is human, deserving legal protection far in advance of the moment the child draws its first breath.

But more than 26 years have passed, politicians are afraid of the ‘a’ word and there is still no legal protection for preborn babies. Many Canadians want the debate re-opened.

Annually, Life Chains are held in Canada and the United States with over 30,000 participants in Canada alone. People stand respectfully, out of concern that human life has value and ‘choice’ must be informed, because abortion ends human life.

This year Life Chain will take place in Trail Saturday at 1 p.m. and in Castlegar and Nelson at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Participants will hold signs with varied messages to convey that abortion is not a solution to women’s problems, and that help is available.

Like the sign that reads “She’s a Child not a Choice” the area Right to Life Society believes every woman should make a choice both she and the baby can live with.

In order to “Love them Both / Choose Life” as another message reads, the group knows it is important to actively offer help and support to pregnant women.

This help can be found locally at the Choices Pregnancy Centre 250-354-1199 or www.choicespregnancycentre.ca

Many participants know the importance of forgiveness and may have themselves had abortions, so want others to know help and support is available at www.canadasilentnomore.com

We welcome everyone to join our peaceful gathering in Trail Saturday at 1 p.m. along Victoria St.;  in Castlegar on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the intersection of Canadian Tire and Highway 3 and in Nelson on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Front St.
