About 100 people lined the Galena Avenue Bridge in Dixon on Sunday holding signs asking passersby to pray for the end of abortion in the United States. Traditionally on the first Sunday of October, Life Chain, a pro-life group, invites churches and organizations to stand for 1 hour to pray and rally.
