• Thousands Gather to Remember Little Ones Too Many Just Want to Forget

    Surge Summary: Multitudes gather across the country over the weekend for “Day of Remembrance” memorial services to dignify the lives of aborted children and to call the nation to think about the national scourge that is legalized baby-killing.

    Mere days ago, something profound, beautiful and heartbreaking occurred, with little fanfare but potentially life-changing and life-saving implications.

    Mikaela Mathews at Christian Headline News reports thousands of pro-life advocates gathered at gravesites for the unborn in what was the 7th annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Childrenaccording to the Daily Wire. At fifty-two designated locations across the country, memorial services were conducted honoring tens of thousands of them.

    “Our society has turned its back on these children, especially those who are most vulnerable—the poor, the minorities, those who are conceived to young mothers—and an event like this where we go to the gravesites reminds us that lives are cut out by abortion,” Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League said. “Whole generations have been snuffed out by abortion, so that’s why it’s critical for us to go out and mourn for these children to model for our society the attitude that we ought to have toward the unborn child.”

    The collective gestures are as potent an expression of the sacredness of life as you’ll find. Unborn children, unwanted and abandoned in the most undeniable manner – murdered by those who were above all others tasked with protecting them – are memorialized by bands of strangers who acknowledge, in retrospect, their lives were worthwhile even though they were unjustifiably cut short.

    As part of the services, advocates share stories of the children buried, including how they were found and killed. One tombstone quotes Luke 23:34: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

    Along with honoring the little ones, the founders of the event expect the services will remind pro-life advocates of the “profound” impact legalized baby-killing has had on America and to touch the hearts of “pro-choice” individuals.

    One organizer of a meeting in Decatur, Georgia, Samantha Harrell, is also hoping the Day of Remembrance will provide an emotional jolt to others, cutting through the political jargon.

    “Too often, abortion is just seen as a political issue or a matter of personal choice, but abortion has real victims: the 60 million American children who have lost their lives to abortion since 1973,” she said. “We will never know these unnamed victims of abortion, but we will never forget them—or stop calling on our society to cherish the life of every unborn child.”

    In a truth-stranger-than-fiction piece of macabre symmetry, The Day of Remembrance unintentionally coincided with a horror story out of Illinois: authorities discovering  finding over 2,000 medically preserved fetuses buried in an abortion doctor’s backyard, as Christian Headlines previously reportedAccording to Faithwire, Dr. Klopfer’s license was suspended indefinitely a few years ago after breaking several state laws.
