Pro-Life Citizens Share Message of Life Through Life Chains

A group gathered near St. Joseph Co-Cathedral in Thibodaux Sunday to share their love for life.

It was the 30th year for a life chain along Gause Boulevard in Slidell on Sunday.

A group of pro-lifers gathered on Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie on Saturday.

Families and friends gathered together Sunday in Patterson for the ninth Life Chain.

Pro-life citizens in several areas of the state were out this past weekend sharing the message of life. Life Chains were held in areas like Metairie, Slidell, Houma/Thibodaux and Patterson Saturday and Sunday. Residents gathered near a busy roadway and waved pro-life signs, serving as a witness for the unborn and their mothers.

Life Chains have been held all across the nation during the month of October for 33 years. It was the ninth year the Patterson Life Chain was held; it was the 30th year for the Slidell Life Chain.
