Pro-life advocates in the United States will observe September 9 as a day of remembrance for the 65 million unborn babies who have been aborted since the Roe v. Wade decision. This marks the second National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children since the Supreme Court overturned Roe, allowing states to protect unborn babies again. Pro-lifers at 185 locations across the country plan to gather at grave sites and memorials to honor the lives lost due to abortion.
The day is not meant to be a protest or rally but a solemn opportunity for prayer and healing. Attendees will hear testimonies from women who regret their abortions, reflections by clergy of various faiths, music, and prayer. The focus is on remembering the victims of abortion and seeking healing for the wounds that abortion has caused in society.
The National Day of Remembrance aims to remind Americans of the devastating impact of abortion. Burial services for aborted babies serve as a powerful reminder that every abortion results in the death of an unborn child, whose body is discarded in various ways. The stories and images associated with these events are meant to awaken the consciences of fellow citizens.
In addition to honoring the unborn victims of abortion, pro-life leaders hope the day will bring mercy and healing to the millions of mothers and fathers affected by abortion. They emphasize the importance of mourning for the victims and seeking God’s healing mercy for those who regret their involvement in abortion.
The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children began in 2013 and continues to be observed even in states that have enacted pro-life laws. Organizers believe that confronting the harm caused by abortion and seeking forgiveness is crucial for healing the wounds of abortion and moving forward as a society.
