Jackson will be the site of a memorial service for unborn victims of abortion on Saturday, September 12. The service, part of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, will take place at 12:30 p.m. at the corner of Mississippi St. and N. President St. This event comes in the wake of series of undercover videos showing top officials at Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, scheming to sell body parts of aborted babies for profit.
“When Planned Parenthood looks at the broken body of an aborted baby, they see a commodity they can exploit for profit. But we see a tiny brother or sister who deserves to be mourned for and solemnly buried,” said Judy Batson, one of the organizers of the Day of Remembrance in Jackson. “Visiting the places where these children are memorialized cuts through all the rhetoric surrounding abortion. We will never know these unnamed victims of abortion, but we will never forget them—or stop fighting to restore legal protection to unborn children”
The Day of Remembrance is being organized by three national pro-life groups—Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League—to humanize the unborn victims of abortion by raising awareness of their burial places and other sites dedicated to their memory. The bodies of tens of thousands of aborted children have been retrieved from trash bins, landfills and other locations and buried at gravesites across the country.
At AbortionMemorials.com, visitors can learn the stories of how many of these children were killed, how they were found, and the details of their burial. The website also lists hundreds of memorial sites dedicated to the victims of abortion throughout the United States.
The first annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children was held in September 2013 to mark the 25th anniversary of the burial of several hundred abortion victims in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Memorial services were held at over 100 memorial sites dedicated to these children, including dozens gravesites where their remains are buried. Going forward, the Day of Remembrance will be held annually on the second Saturday in September.
