Join the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 10

September 9, 2016 09:00 AM encourages pro-lifers everywhere to remember preborn babies tomorrow. According to its site:

On Saturday, September 10, 2016, Citizens for a Pro-Life SocietyPriests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League will cosponsor the fourth annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of our aborted brothers and sisters.

Solemn prayer vigils will be conducted at these gravesites, of which there are 50 across the United States, as well as at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children.

Why visit the gravesites of the unborn?

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.

Tens of thousands of these children have been retrieved and buried at gravesites across our country. The stories of how they 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.

But while a funeral and burial for an aborted baby may be a relatively rare event, the opportunity to visit the burial places and recall how those children got there does not have to be rare—in fact, it shouldn't be.

Pro-lifers should be visiting these gravesites—and other memorial sites dedicated to aborted babies—as a regular part of their pro-life witness. That's what the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is all about.
