Today is the first observance of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. In the last 40 years, 55 million unborn babies have been killed in the womb. Very few of those were buried; many were thrown away in the garbage. There are 25 burial sites, many with graves holding hundreds of bodies retrieved from abortion center trash cans. Memorial services will be held at each of these sites for all the aborted babies who were never given a proper burial but treated as waste.
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, who loves every one of His children and has a perfect plan for each of their lives, hear our supplications on behalf of the millions of children who are being killed in the womb; in Your mercy, protect their vulnerable lives; touch the hearts of their mothers and those who influence their mothers’ choices; show them a better way; and give them the peace that passes understanding when they do Your will. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
Below is a moving video from an adult survivor of abortion. She was a twin and the abortion was successful in killing her twin, but weeks later, her mother discovered she was still pregnant. She carried this baby to term, and that child, Claire Culwell, grew up to become a pro-life activist.
