Bells toll for lives lost

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. – Geneva College and the Pennsylvanians for Human Life (PHL) are encouraging churches in the region to ring their steeple bells Sunday, January 22, to memorialize the 33rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Churches participating in the event, called Life Ring, will begin a funeral tolling sequence at 12 p.m. and toll their bell once every twenty seconds for eleven minutes.

     The traditional funeral bell serves as a memorial for lives lost. Life Ring marks each year of the thirty-three years of legalized abortion with a single tenor bell toll. During that time church congregations are encouraged to pray for the end of legalized abortion. Life Ring is an effective way to remind communities of the moral crisis of abortion in the United States.

     Legalized abortion has taken the lives of over 45 million unborn children since the 1973 ruling. In 2002, an estimated 35,167 abortions were performed in Pennsylvania alone.

     For more information, contact Jeffrey Schindel at 724-847-6577 or visit Geneva’s Web site at www.geneva.edu.
