To the Editor:

We will be sponsoring the 24th annual Life Chain on the New Milford Village Green Oct. 5 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

We will pray and hold signs that witness to the sanctity of human life. All faiths are welcome to join us and this is a national event.

In 1995, a Gallup poll showed that 56 percent of Americans identified themsevles as pro-choice.

However, according to a Gallup poll taken in May 2013, we believe a whopping 58 percent of Americans oppose all or some abortions.

Clearly, now is not the time to rest or give up. We are very close to victory.

Can you spare just one hour for the Life Chain?
