To the Editor:

For the 23rd year, we will be sponsoring our annual life chain on the Village Green in New Milford.

This is a pro-life event, held the first Sunday in October every year across the nation.

We come out, rain or shine, using appropriate signs, and pray to end abortion.

This legal witness has been very effective in causing numerous women to cancel their abortions.

It saves lives.

The Rev. Frank Pavone, a pro-life champion, said recently, "To imagine God giving the slightest approval to an act that dismembers a child that he created is offensive to both faith and reason."

Please join us Sunday, Oct. 6 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the Village Green to stand up for life.

Evil triumphs when good people do nothing. Can you spare just one hour?
