Shelby County Forms One Link in National Life Chain
Pro-lifers in Shelby County gathered at the courthouse in Sidney on Sunday, October 7, to pray and witness to the dignity of human life. They were part of a vast "Life Chain," across 1500 communities in North America.
Malorie Hussey, the first-place finisher in our local oratory contest earlier this year, presented her outstanding speech on the personal and societal effects of abortion. Participants then held signs along the streets of the court square during a period of silent prayer and witness. The event closed with a brief presentation by membership committee chair, Mary Schmiesing, who discussed the important of being active in the election of pro-life candidates in November.
Thank you to Malorie, Mary, to Sanna Aikin for providing bottled water, and to all who joined us for this year's Life Chain.
