National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, September 10, 2016

St. Teresa of Calcutta quote

September 10th, is the fourth annual Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children in the United States. Join millions of pro-life Americans in remembering the victims of abortion and in praying for a culture of life where no child is unwanted or unloved. Father Shenan J. Boquet, President of Human Life International, explains the power of our collective prayers to change hearts and save lives:

"In a world where possessions and power are often valued far above persons, it is important that the pro-life faithful pray in solidarity to remember all the unborn babies — the real treasure of humanity — killed since the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in this country.

Our united prayers can help comfort our brothers and sisters who have lost children to abortion. Our united prayers for our aborted little brothers and sisters can testify to their humanity. Our united prayers, through the Holy Spirit, can turn hardened hearts, especially of those who work in the abortion industry, into compassionate hearts on fire to protect all life from conception to natural death."

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
