October is Respect Life Month!

October is National Respect Life Month!

Delaware Right to Life celebrates October with several upcoming events.

First, October 4th is Respect Life Sunday. DRTL will sponsor life chains in each county. Life Chains are a national peaceful and prayerful witness of pro-life Americans standing for one or two hours praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity that abortion kills children. DRTL will provide the signs. Please always be respectful and courteous of passers-by.

In New Castle, the event will take place along Concord Pike (Rte. 202) at AstraZeneca, across from the Fairfax Shopping Center from 12-1 p.m. In Kent, people will gather in front of Planned Parenthood on Governor’s Ave. from 12-2 p.m. Sussex will hold two life chains - one along Route 1 and South 9th St. in South Bethany from 2-4 p.m., and another along Route 1 in front of St. Jude's church in Lewes from 2-4 p.m. Last year we had record numbers – let’s break records again and show Delaware we’re pro-life!

40 Days for Life's national fall campaign begins this Wednesday, September 23rd! In New Castle Co. we will participate in the 40-day prayerful vigil at the AWMS Clinic at 2809 Baynard Blvd. in Wilmington. In Dover, we will participate at the Dover Planned Parenthood along Governor's Ave. For dates, times, and to register for a time slot, please click here. This is a wonderful opportunity for church, youth, and school groups to get involved and volunteer! Please contact Kathy in New Castle County, or Jim in Kent Co. for more information.
