Life Chain Sunday 3 October 2021


Life is Threatened
The most dangerous place in the world is not Iraq, Ukraine, Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, or the Congo. The most dangerous place in the world is the womb. Pre-born babies are being killed in their mother’s wombs at a greater rate than any other section of society.

Abortion Holocaust
A growing number of Christians worldwide are beginning to recognise the abortion holocaust as one of the greatest evils being committed in the world today. It is an urgent priority for the Church to expose, oppose and end this war against children made in the image of God. “They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters… the land was desecrated by their blood.” Psalm 106:37-38

Modern Day Child Sacrifice
Abortion is the modern equivalent of child sacrifice. Just as God’s people opposed Pharaoh’s decree to murder new born boys in Egypt (Exodus 1:15-22), so we need to protect pre-born babies from abortion today. Just as king Herod sought to kill the babies in Bethlehem (Matthew 2:16), so abortionists are attempting to butcher babies today.

International Event
Sunday, 3 October, is International Life Chain Sunday. On previous Life Chain Sundays, up to one million Christians in over 1,400 locations worldwide have stood for the right to life of pre-born babies. Life Chains have been held every year since 1987 in the USA and since 1992 in South Africa. Over one million, eight hundred thousand (1,800,000) babies have been killed through abortion in South Africa since 1 February 1997, legally.

Show You Care
We hope that you will show that you care by participating in a Life Chain in your city. If you are in, or near Cape Town, we certainly hope that you will make the time to join us at the entrance to the Waterfront, opposite the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Buitengracht Street, downtown Cape Town, on Sunday 3 October from 2pm to 4pm.

The Life Chain is a family-friendly event, children are welcome. Those who have difficulty standing can bring folding chairs. Please also bring a hat and your own water. Bring as many friends and family with you, as possible.

Inform and Intercede
Africa Christian Action’s placards provided at the Life Chain, have pro-life information and prayer points on the back for participants to engage in prayer, as they stand and silently proclaim the truth about abortion. With messages such as “Abortion Kills Babies” “Abortion: One Heart Stops, Another Heart Breaks,” “Choose Life! So that you and your children may live,” and “Babies are a blessing,” Life Chain participants have informed millions of passing motorists as they line the streets of their cities, large and small, across America, Canada, South Africa, Zambia and in other countries worldwide. "Wisdom calls aloud outside, she raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gate in the city, she speaks her words." Proverbs 1:20-21

Stand for Life
The Life Chains, will be one of the positive and practical ways we can stand up for the sanctity of life and speak up for the right to life of pre-born babies. We also trust that you will be able to encourage your church leaders to promote and pray for the National March for Life and Life Chains.

Speak Up for the Pre-born
Through these Life Chains we pray that God will enable us to reach:

  • Mothers who are considering abortion,
  • Medical personnel who must decide whether to participate in abortions or not,
  • Christians who need to consider volunteering to work at a Crisis Pregnancy Centre,
  • Pastors who need to preach on when life begins and how we are to love our pre-born neighbours,
  • Journalists who should present the other side of the abortion story,
  • Politicians who need to enact legislation to protect pre-born babies from the violence of abortion,
  • Lives that will be saved.

“If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength! Rescue those who are led away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter. If you say, but we knew nothing about this, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Will He not repay each person according to what he has done?”Proverbs 24:10 -12
