Advocates for the unborn join a national action Sunday, Nov. 3, 2:30 – 4 p.m. The Life Chain in Portland is a peaceful public vigil along the road near Planned Parenthood, 3727 NE MLK Jr. Boulevard.

Participants pray for more than 60 million aborted children, their parents and those who work at Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. They also pray for national leaders and people in crisis.

“This event is a visual statement that abortion kills children and that all life is precious from the moment of conception until natural death,” said a statement from the Knights of Columbus at St. Pius X Parish in Northwest Portland who plan to attend.

Usually, those at the vigils hold signs saying things like, “Abortion Kills Children,” “Jesus Forgives and Heals,” and “Adoption: the Loving Option.”
