Longview, TX — Church members lined the street in front of the Longview Mall on Sunday from McCann to Judson roads where they hoped the message they carried would touch someone.
Members from about 25 area churches stood with thousands of pro-lifers across the nation during the 22nd Annual Life Chain to raise awareness and spread their message every child has a right to life.
In Hallsville, another 40 or 50 people joined in the cause, lining U.S. 80 in the city’s downtown area.
“The reason I am here is if we influence one pregnant woman to save that baby’s life, then it is worthwhile,” Tom Mittler, 59, president of Right to Life East Texas, said while standing in front of Longview Mall.
Those participating silently prayed while holding signs designed to voice their opposition against abortion and to spread the message that there are alternatives.
