Members of St. Scholastica Parish in Aspinwall will participate in the National Life Chain on Sunday, Oct. 1 in Etna.

The pro-life movement finds people joining together to raise awareness of the issue. Participants often hold signs to increase their presence in local neighborhoods.

Anyone interested can join the chain from 2 to 3 p.m. Oct. 1 at Butler and Grant streets.

The Life Chain was founded in 1987, parishioner Mary Catherine Scanlon said, and has grown each year.

“There used to be just a few locations, now they are everywhere,” the Aspinwall resident said.

Other locations include St. Bonaventure Parish along Mt. Royal Boulevard; Route 8 near Richland Mall in Gibsonia; and Route 19 at Rochester Road in Cranberry.

For more information, call Scanlon at 412-781-6550.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
