The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Babies is taking place all around the country this weekend. There are several locations so hopefully if you can’t make it one day you can the other. So what is the National Day of Remembrance? It is a day where people go to cemeteries that have taken aborted babies and given them a proper burial. Too many of those tragic lives have just been tossed in the trash like everyday refuse. This allows these lives at least to have the human dignity of being buried.
The National Day of Remembrance of Aborted Babies helps put into perspective the tragedy of abortion and the human costs of it. We are about sixty million when it comes to how many children have died via abortion. That number is way to high. It is time abortion was not justified by the state and given money to quack doctors to perform. It is time abortion was ended and not regulated.
The first one of these remembrance days was held in 2013 and they had 100 memorials back then. Today there is 164 memorial sites. These are basically vigils for the unborn, so there will be prayers, candle-lighting and I would gather those sharing their stories of their own abortion, people with their own grief. Organizations like Silent No More Awareness, that helps women recover from their abortion by allowing them to speak out about their experience will be out there, along with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and Pro-Life Action League. They are all major sponsors of this event.
Even if you can’t participate in any of the events, you should continue to fight for the lives of the unborn. It is time we abolish abortion altogether, not regulate it. You cannot regulate what is already illegal.
