Throwback Thursday: Thousands of Pro-Lifers Rally In Little Rock

On October 4, 1992, pro-lifers peacefully rallied in Little Rock as part of a nationwide Life Chain.

Pro-lifers stood 6-8 feet apart from each other along busy thoroughfares for an hour.

The Little Rock Life Chain formed a giant cross that intersected at Markham and Mississippi streets and measured approximately two by five miles.

Organizers Lori Upson, Bobbi Patterson, Rose Mimms, and Jody Duke reported that over 100 churches supported their efforts in the Little Rock area.

An estimated 6,000 pro-lifers reportedly participated in the Life Chain in Little Rock.

Life Chains were also held in Fayetteville, Rogers, Bentonville, Camden, Mountain Home, Yellville, Siloam Springs, Texarkana, Walnut Ridge, Hope, Arkadelphia and Ashdown.

Family Council was pleased to be part of this historic event.

The Life Chain still is held every October. This year’s Life Chain will take place Sunday, October 6. Click here to learn more.

Video: Woman Walked Out of Little Rock Abortion Facility Because Pro-Life Volunteers Were Praying

Last week our friends at 40 Days for Life released a video featuring Heather, a woman who walked out of an abortion facility in Little Rock because pro-life volunteers were standing outside the clinic, praying for her.

40 Days for Life writes that Heather “was moments away from an abortion in Little Rock, Arkansas–until prayers from the 40 Days for Life vigil led her to get off the table and choose life! . . . Heather never told the vigil participants she chose life…until those same volunteers she saw praying for her spoke at her church!

You can hear Heather’s testimony by watching the video below. You’ll also hear from 40 Days for Life volunteers in Georgia.

Prayer vigils are happening outside the surgical abortion facility in Little Rock right now as part of 40 Days for Life.
