Local group participates in national Life Chain

Abortion is a hot button issue on the campaign trail and here at home. Several local church groups banded together Sunday for an anti-abortion demonstration. Hundreds of people held up pro-life signs along College Road in Wilmington. Many prayed while doing so. Demonstrators said they got a mixed reaction from motorists driving by. “The majority are supportive. There are a lot of silent people. Occasional folks that don't believe what we do - they'll put there thumbs down and frown, that kind of thing,” said protester David Heinrichs. The demonstrators were out there for about an hour. It was part of an annual, national event called Life Chain. In 2007, there were more than 1,300 "Life Chains" built in communities across the United States.
