As leftist pressure to vote “pro-choice” ramps up, it’s crucial to remember what that means.
“Pro-choice” is simply a way of advocating for the death of innocent children.
Instead we should mourn these children, and the opportunity to do so is just around the corner.
The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is a project of the Pro-Life Action League and it’s coming up on Saturday, September 12th!
The Pro-Life Action League seeks to “lead creative pro-life activism throughout the nation.”
The organization holds protests, vigils, and other events to raise awareness of the unborn and defend their rights.
The National Day of Remembrance is intended “to remind people of the brutal reality of abortion and inspire them to take action.”
“The National Day of Remembrance calls upon America to mourn for these children, to reckon with the absence that we’ve experienced because their lives were taken away,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the League.
“Their lives were violently and unjustly ended through abortion.”
The Pro-Life Action League believes strongly that it is important to honor these aborted children whose lives were cut short before they could influence and enjoy the world.
“[We must] mourn for those children…take stock of our involvement [in the practice of abortion], and…seek God’s healing and mercy,” Scheidler added.
This will be the eighth annual Day of Remembrance organized by Pro-Life Action League. The Day of Remembrance was first organized in 2013 when the Pro-Life Action League wanted to memorialize an important event.
September 2013 was the 25th anniversary of the burial of 1,500 abortion victims in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The League created the first Day of Remembrance to honor these victims and decided to continue the event each year.
Since the first Day of Remembrance, thousands of aborted babies have been buried in mass graves.
These burials included nearly 50 victims of Kermit Gosnell, a convicted late-term abortionist, and over 2,400 victims of Ulrich Klopfer, an abortionist from Indiana.
These two men and many other abortionists have tried to dispose of the evidence of their murders, but the Day of Remembrance brings them to light each year and reminds America of the great sin of abortion.
The Day of Remembrance is a chance for all pro-life Americans to “honor the gravesites of our aborted brothers and sisters,” the Pro-Life Action League states.
While visiting these graves is a difficult and heart-wrenching ordeal for many, it’s important to remember the millions who have died at the hands of abortionists.
“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.”
The League has many ways of awakening sympathy for the unborn during these events: storytelling, images, and even testimonies from mothers who have aborted their unborn children.
“The stories of how [babies] were killed, how they were found, and how they were buried, along with the pictures and videos that document those events, are powerful tools to awaken the consciences of our fellow citizens.”
“[When] abortion no longer remains an abstraction, [the impact of these stories] can be brought to an even more profound level when experienced during an event, such as the funeral for an aborted baby.”
This creative way of approaching the pro-life perspective has convicted many “pro-choice” individuals and helped them realize the value of unborn lives.
After several years of hosting these events, the League knows how critical it is to get more people involved.
“Pro-lifers should be visiting these gravesites—and other memorial sites dedicated to aborted babies—as a regular part of their pro-life witness,” the League asserted.
“That’s what the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is all about.”
This year, the Pro-Life Action League urges all pro-life Americans to attend a service of remembrance and hold prayer vigils in honor of the unborn.
You can find a service or a vigil near you here or even volunteer to host your own event at one of the 54 known gravesites of aborted children.
Let’s join together in prayer and intercession on September 12, asking God to protect the unborn in our nation and around the world.
