The annual Life Chain, held on the first Sunday in October every year, celebrated its 30th year on Sunday with approximately 1,600 events in communities across the United States and Canada. The pro-life event is a peaceful rally that calls people to pray for an end to abortion and raise awareness about its devastating effects on our culture.

Many of the pro-life advocates had personal experiences that brought them out to the sidewalks.

A crowd of pro-lifers in Plattsburgh, New York received a mixed response to their prayers and signs that read “Abortion Kills Children.” Some people in the public waved in support, while others seemed angry or upset by the signs.

Kobylus told the Salisbury Post that his daughter got pregnant in high school and considered having an abortion.
