The National Day of Remembrance

National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children

For Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of our aborted brothers and sisters. abortionmemorials.com

When people become truly aware of the reality of abortion, they can more easily cut through the lies by which some try to justify it, and the natural apathy to which human nature is inclined. Even pro-life people are thrust into a higher level of commitment and activism.

I don’t have any relatives or friends interred at this cemetery, but it does contain one rather unique gravesite that I’ve visited on a number of occasions over the past few years: namely, the final resting place of 2,033 babies killed by abortion, who were laid to rest by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin in 1988.

I encourage you to participate at your local memorial service, many of which will be held at the gravesites or designated memorial sites of aborted victims. When we gather in His name, our intercessory prayer honors the innocent victims – the living and the dead – in an effort to help us as a nation heal, forgive, and bring this devastation to an end.

Legalized abortion in America over the several decades is surely our country’s greatest tragedy. In the Sermon on the Mount, Our Lord brings us renewed hope from our mourning and weeping in this vale of tears: “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Full article at hli.org
