Pro-lifers across America to hold National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children
by Calvin Freiburger
September 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Saturday, September 14 will see pro-lifers across the United States gather to pray around graves for aborted children to emphasize that abortion is not an abstract issue, but a concrete human tragedy.
Cosponsored by Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life, and Pro-Life Action League, the seventh annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children will consist of 195 memorial services across the country, 52 of which will take place at gravesites specifically recognizing children who died in the womb.
“Visiting the graves of aborted children really puts these legislative battles into perspective,” the Pro-Life Action League’s Eric Scheidler said in a press release. “All the protests on one side and celebrations on the other, all the threatened boycotts and political posturing — none of it seems to matter when you realize that actual victims of abortion are buried right beneath your feet. These tiny children were never born. Never learned to walk. Never had a first day of school. They were never even given names.”
