The Supreme Court struck down every state law protecting unborn children on January 22, 1973. Since then 56 million unborn children have been aborted. These children, made in the image and likeness of God are remembered and mourned at various memorial sites located in our local Church yards and public areas.
On the Feast of the Holy innocents, December 28, 2013, people of Faith at SS. Peter and Paul parish, reflected on the death of the children who have died in our local abortion; mills. Grief is not for their souls, for we are certain of their place with God. We know that their voices are not silenced in heaven.
We believe that they plead for us. We believe that they are praying for our steadfastness in following God’s will.
The memorial stone, by its very presence, reminds us of our commitment to abolish the taking of innocent life in our land. We ask for God’s mercy and forgiveness for ourselves with a pledge to shelter all children, all parents who are desperate and despairing, and to plead our cause to Jesus, through Mary our Mother forever.
