International Life Chains Proclaim Right to Life of the Pre-born


Abortion Holocaust
According to official Department of Health statistics, 1 010 019 babies have been killed by abortion in South Africa since abortion-on-demand was legalised in 1997. Possibly millions more have been killed by illegal abortions.

Illegal abortionists operate with impunity in virtually every city and town in South Africa - due to the failure of police and city officials to investigate or make any arrests. The Department of Health estimated that there are 38 illegal abortions per 1 000 women (report in Sowetan Live, 12 June 2012).

Action Against Illegal Abortionists
Pro-life groups are willing to help the Department of Health and Police crackdown on illegal abortionists who are endangering so many millions of women and babies’ lives. However, it is ludicrous when the police fine pro-lifers for taking action against these abortion posters but fail to arrest those are clearly contravening the law.

Pro-life activist Peter Throp has been fined R2 500 for placing ‘Value Life’ stickers over illegal abortion posters in Cape Town. He has chosen not to pay the fine and will rather go to court on 12 November to defend his actions. He recommends that police use the RICA system to block the cell phone numbers of illegal abortionists.

Loving Alternatives
Pro-life groups uphold the sanctity of life – that every life is valuable to God. Over 70 Crisis Pregnancy Centres, Mothers Homes and Baby Homes across South Africa provide women with loving alternatives and practical support, not just one choice – abortion – that pro-abortionists coerce women into choosing. Doctors for Life and many other Christian groups each care for hundreds of orphans.

The Life Chains recognise the abortion holocaust as one of the greatest evils being committed in the world today.

Right to Life the Most Basic Right
Cheryllyn Dudley, a Member of Parliament on the Health Portfolio Committee said at the Life Chain in Cape Town, “Without the Right to Life, all other human rights are meaningless. If South Africans who are pro-life want to have a voice in Parliament, they must ensure that they vote for pro-life parties at the next elections.”

Life begins at conception
Life begins at conception. The pre-born baby is then genetically, physiologically and organically a distinct person. At about three weeks after conception the baby's heartbeat can be detected. Six weeks after conception the baby has its own lifelong brainwave.

Slippery Slope
When a nation devalues it's most helpless and innocent citizens and allows them to be slaughtered in their millions, it is no wonder that all other life is treated as cheap.It is an urgent priority for the Church to expose, oppose, and end this genocide of children made in the image of God.

Since 1987 Life Chains have been held in the USA, and since 1992 Africa Christian Action has organised Life Chains in South Africa. This was the 20 th Life Chain held in Cape Town.
