Thousands of Canadians to take to streets opposing abortion Oct. 2

Motivated by the recent overturning of Roe in the United States, thousands of Canadians will take to the streets of towns and cities across Canada on October 2 to peacefully protest against the killing of pre-born human children by abortion.   

The annual Life Chain event, coordinated by Campaign Life Coalition and local right-to-life groups, sees men, women, and children of every age standing at intersections while silently praying for one hour for an end to abortion. They hold signs with messages such as: “Abortion kills children,” “Abortion hurts women,” “Adoption, the loving option,” and “Life, the first inalienable right.”  

This year, there are almost 300 Life Chain locations across Canada, in all ten provinces and one territory.   

“Pro-life Canadians are thrilled this year to be standing in solidarity with pre-born children in a post-Roe world,” said Josie Luetke, Youth Co-coordinator for Campaign Life Coalition. “When Life is winning in the U.S., we have hope that it will be only a matter of time before life is winning in Canada too.”  

Josie said that with abortion now in the spotlight like never before, public witness to the sanctity of life has never been more important.   

“Life Chain is the perfect opportunity for Canadians to be a voice for the voiceless and to witness to the value and dignity that each child in the womb has as a full member of the human family,” she said.
