Annual day of public witness for children killed by abortion
Life Chain is held simultaneously in more than 200 locations across Canada each year. Please mark your calendar—the next Life Chain will be on Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 2-3 pm in most locations.
A small pro-life group called Please Let Me Live in Yuba City, California held the first Life Chain in 1987, and the United States has had a National Life Chain every year since. Campaign Life Coalition brought Life Chain into Canada from the U.S. in 1990, igniting a powerful public witness in our country that has endured the test of years, saved lives and changed hearts.

How does it work?
Life Chain is an easy way to get involved in pro-life activism. Just find out where and when your local Life Chain will be held, and then show up for one hour to stand on the sidewalk with others who are not ashamed to be a public witness. Your local Life Chain organizer will provide you with a non-graphic Life Chain sign to hold, and you may pray silently for an end to abortion and for those affected by it.
