Life Chain pro-life demonstration in Kelowna

Kelowna Right To Life Society will participate in North America wide Life Chain public event opposing legalized abortion on Oct. 2.

Kelowna will be among 1,600 communities across North America taking part in the Life Chain pro-life public demonstration simultaneously.

The Life Chain, where people line up together at the intersection of Gordon Drive and Harvey Avenue, linked arm in arm, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The local organizer for the event, the  Kelowna Right to Life Society, anticipates up to 300 people will take part this year.

Life Chain is an opportunity for the local pro-life community to proclaim the truths that abortion kills pre-born children and hurts women, and that healing is available for those women and men who have been emotionally damaged by a past abortion,” said Life Chain media spokesperson Marietta Egan.

It’s been over 47 years now that there has been no legal protection at all for pre-born children in Canada. Eventually, society will come to recognize the humanity of the tiny children killed in abortion, and this injustice will end.”

The  Kelowna Right to Life Society is also hosting the documentary film Hush on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at the Okanagan College theatre. Hush explores in depth the physical and emotional damage that abortion can have on women.

More information on both the Life Chain and the Hush screening can be found at
