The weather was beautiful for the 2013 Life Chain, held on October 6th along Academy Blvd. at Austin Bluffs Pkwy.
Pro-life witnesses came from all around the city to create a chain approximately 500 people strong, a 25% increase over last year’s Life Chain attendance estimate.
Given the traffic volume on Academy, many drivers were able to witness the Life Chain. Attendees this year held not only some of the signs provided by organizers but also a number of handmade signs. Additionally, many attendees had roses from the “Roses for Life” event earlier in the weekend.
Both the Life Chain and the Roses for Life events were sponsored by Pikes Peak Citizens for Life.
The local press took interest in the event. The interview of Fr. Bill Carmody was published by Fox News 21.
