WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- For the 20th year, Wilmington joined more than 1400 cities in the U.S. and Canada to participate in the national Life Chain.
The event is designed to be a silent protest by Christians to voice their opposition to abortion. Those who took part in the protest say they have no animosity towards those who disagree with their point of view - they just want to express their own beliefs. They say the pro-life cause is something they truly believe in.
"Very much so...kids matter. they matter to God so they matter to everyone that belongs to God" said Sue Whitmore, who participated in the protest.
Hundreds of people participated in the protest by lining high traffic streets with signs and decorating antique cars with calls for their cause.
