mass funeralIn September 1988, pro-lifers held a mass funeral in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for 1,200 aborted babies found on a medical laboratory loading dock in Northbrook, Illinois. See photo, right.

To mark the 25th anniversary of this solemn occasion, Citizens for a Pro-Life SocietyPriests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League are co-sponsoring a National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on Saturday, September 14, asking pro-lifers to hold memorial services at 39 grave sites of aborted babies across the country. In addition, services will be held at hundreds of memorial sites dedicated to aborted babies.Romeoville01

Along with Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Siegel of the Diocese of Joliet, I will be speaking at the service for aborted babies Patrick and Sarah at Resurrection Cemetery in Romeoville, Illinois. The photo, left, shows the hands of one of these two precious babies.

Please plan to attend one of these services.

Hosts are still needed for burial sites at:

  • Riverside, California
  • North Lauderdale, Florida
  • East Durham, New York
  • Snyder, Pennsylvania

Several of the memorial sites are in need of hosts as well.

Three reasons pro-life advocates should host a memorial service:memorials

  • Help make history as part of the inaugural National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children
  • Provide solidarity, as your memorial service will be one of dozens taking place simultaneously all over the country to highlight the humanity of these poor preborn babies
  • Draw attention and mourn the loss of children in your community and awaken the nation’s conscience to the injustice that has been done to them as well as 55 million preborn babies since abortion was legalized in 1973.
