DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Across the country  today -- people are advocating against abortion -- for the Annual National Life Chain.

Dubuque demonstrators lined up -- along highway 20 to help spread their pro-life message.

Some drivers showed their support by honking.

This event is part of a nationwide effort -- that takes place in thousands of cities at the same time.

"The purpose of it is to show people that we are standing up for life, that we value life, from conception until natural death and that would be every single life," said Trina Hingtgen with Dubuque County Right to Life.

This is the 23rd year the Dubuque community has participated in the life chain event.

Organizers say one also took place in  Dyersville.
