Their birthdays – and their lives – were most cruelly and brutally stolen

The Pro-Life Action League, along with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and Priests for Life has announced the “National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children” to take place on Saturday, September 14, 2013. It is meant to honor the unborn at the grave sites where they are buried.

Eric Scheidler, Executive Director of the Pro-life Action League, stated, “It’s sobering to realize that grave markers for the unborn victims of abortion list only a date of burial. They have no birthdays because they were never allowed to be born. We can list no date of death, because those who killed them discarded their bodies like garbage. But they are not garbage to us. They are our brothers and sisters. That’s why we buried them, and that’s why we visit their graves to mourn for them and testify to their humanity.”
