National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children at Memorials for the Unborn

Not everyone has forgotten the abandoned victims of abortion. Over the years, a few of them have been granted that last gift of human kindness, a proper burial. At more than 50 gravesites across the country, tens of thousands of abortion victims have been so honored—a staggering number, but only a tiny fraction of the nearly 60 million of our children legally aborted since 1973.

On Saturday, September 10, these gravesites will be visited by thousands of Americans during fourth annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. Memorial services will also be observed at more than 100 other sites across the country consecrated in memory of abortion’s unborn victims.

At these Day of Remembrance services, pro-life activists will tell their stories of recovering the bodies of abortion victims from dumpsters and pathology labs, and fighting to have them buried—sometimes even being sued by abortion providers. Mothers and fathers who regret choosing abortion will share their testimonies. Grieving parents and grandparents will publicly mourn for the children they have lost.

When people heard about the tragedy of Baby Hope, many lamented that her mother had not taken advantage of the “Safe Haven” law that allows newborn children to be dropped off at hospitals and firehouses, no questions asked. Such laws save more than 3,000 babies every year in the United States.

Curiously, that’s the same number of babies aborted in our country—not every year, but every single day. There is no “safe haven” for unborn children—not even their own mothers’ wombs.

This Saturday, we will contemplate who these millions of unknown children might have become, if only we had kept them safe from abortion.
