Vigils Held at Abortion Cemeteries

Vigils Held at Abortion Cemeteries

A common feature of nearly all genocides and mass murders is that they are carried out in secret. The targets are always dehumanised. Propaganda and censorship conceal the true horror of what is being done, and the victims are cremated or buried in unmarked graves. There are no services for the dead, and no memorials – it is as if they never existed.

The global abortion Holocaust has followed the pattern of other genocides, and the Templars and our friends in the pro-life movement have long argued that the key to stopping the horror of abortion is to make people understand that unborn babies are fully human, to show people the bloody reality of the ‘medical’ process, and to commemorate the dead.

The message is getting through. The latest great initiative comes in the USA, where vigils have just been hosted at abortion victim burial sites for National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children

By participating in a vigil, ‘you are helping to humanize our aborted brothers and sisters and deepening your own commitment to ending the injustice of abortion.’

The national day of mourning was commemorated yesterday with 187 memorial prayer vigils across the country at the various gravesites where so many innocent victims of abortion have been buried.

The organisers spelled out the aim of the vigils:

“When people become aware of the reality of abortion, they can more easily cut through the lies by which some try to justify it, and the natural apathy to which human nature is inclined. Even pro-life people are thrust into a higher level of commitment and activism.”

“Tens of thousands of these children have been retrieved and buried at gravesites across our country. The stories of how they were killed, how they were found, and how they were buried, along with the images and videos that accompany those events, are powerful tools to awaken the consciences of our fellow citizens. Pro-lifers should be visiting these gravesites — and other memorial sites dedicated to aborted babies — as a regular part of their pro-life witness.”

According to the 2020 data, 62,502,904 abortions have been conducted in America alone since the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade imposed abortion on all 50 states.

From 1973 to 2012, America saw over a million abortions a year. The number has been reduced in the recent half decade but still remains at an official average of over 600,000 per year.

In 2019, abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide, with over 42 million abortions performed across the globe.

In another shocking studying from 2014, researchers estimated that over 1 billion abortions have been carried out worldwide since 1920. For comparison: The entire population of Europe is 748 million.

The good news is that growing awareness of what abortion really entails is piling up pressure on the gruesome death industry. Our work and prayers are part not of some forlorn hope, rear-guard action, but of an inexorable shift towards a world without the injustice and violence of abortion.
