Memorial to the Unborn

Eric Schiedler, the founder of Pro Life Action League, has asked us to go and visit a memorial to the unborn today.  His prayer campaign is called "Blessed Are They Who Mourn" and he's asked for each of us to go and pray for the unborn, their mama's and our nation.  We are a nation in need of healing.

On his website, there is a link that will let you check by state, each and every memorial to the unborn.  There are 227 sites in over 41 states that have this special memorial.  How touching yet so sad.

Here are some pictures from the one I visited today.  It's especially poignant with it's tear drop shape and Mary embracing the newborn babe.

My time was short since it was 4 degrees outside but long enough so I could pray for mercy on our nation and ask for the intercession of Mary and all the angels and saints.

"Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward" (Psalm 127:3).


  1. Noreen,

    I don't know of any memorials to the unborn here, but I can still pray.

    God bless you!

  2. You should google it and see. I was pleasantly surprised at how many we have in the states.

  3. Thank you for visiting and praying for our nation, Noreen. I did google it and found that there is a national one in Chatanooga, TN and there some parents find healing by having a brass plate made in honor of their unborn child. I saw one that said "Matthew". Grabs your heart. The image of Mary holding the baby also reminds me exactly of a testimony from someone that went through Project Rachel to find healing, as she was given this image/and memory of Mary holding her unborn child and through this she came to peace. I so want this legalized slaughter of innocents to end!

  4. Amen to that Colleen! Thanks for visiting and commenting. Praying for those mamas.
