Quebec pro-lifers are on the map !
(Quebec Life Chain locations)
Yesterday pro-lifers across North America held Life Chain demonstrations, where for one hour groups ranging from 5 to 50 prayed in a public place for an end to abortion while holding signs saying "Jesus forgives and heals", "Abortion Kills Children" and "Adoption: A loving option".
Hundreds of demonstrations were held all over Canada; and for the first time, Quebec held demonstrations outside of Quebec City and Montreal, spreading out in 11 locations: 3 in downtown Montreal, 2 in Sherbrooke, and one in each of the following locations: Pointe-Claire (West Island of Montreal), Quebec City, Lévis (south of Quebec City), Drummondville, Rawdon, and Sainte-Marcelyne-de-Kildare.

All in all, a great day for Life in Canada. And I'm glad to say that Quebec played its part, and we've only begun !
Our vital autumn 2023 fundraising campaign is now going strong. You know that we can only do our job with your support!
Our target is $12,000. I hope you can help us reach it by the end of our campaign on 18 October.

The Life Chain, a pro-life demonstration organized in Montreal on Sunday, October 2nd near the Namur metro station.
On Sunday afternoon, October 2nd, Quebec Life Coalition organized an annual event called the Life Chain.
Each year, on the first Sunday of October, pro-life activists gather to form anti-abortion prayer chains in Canada and the United States. Their goal is to share a message in support of the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. In Montreal, the Life Chain has been organized since 1991, while in the United States it began in 1987. In 1990, Campaign Life Coalition began this activity in Canada.
Sunday's demonstration in Montreal took place near the Namur metro station, at the corner of Décarie Boulevard and Jean-Talon Street. On that sunny day, the group numbered about 20 people, both men and women, holding signs with messages in French and English such as:
- "Abortion kills children"
- "Yes to adoption"
- "Jesus forgives and heals"
- "Pray for an end to abortion"
