WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- On Sunday afternoon, Wilmington joined more than 1,400 cities as a site for an pro-life rally.
The event is called Life Chain, and it's in its 21st year. Life Chain is one of the nation's largest pro-life rallies. People who participated say it's a way to communicate their opposition to abortion.
“We're not standing against abortion,” said Deborah Benson, a spokeswoman for Life Chain. “We're not throwing condemnation or guilt on anybody. It's not where our hearts are. Our hearts are to give a voice to the babies who don't have a voice.”
Life Chain participants stood along busy street at three different locations in Wilmington from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
