DAY OF REMEMBRANCE FOR ABORTED CHILDREN
Saturday, September 14th
Keynote Speaker: Jeanhee Kang
National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children was started in 2013 by Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League seven years ago. Prayer vigils are conducted at 52 gravesites across the United States and at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children. In 2018 there were 187 vigils locations throughout the United States, with over 6,000 in attendance.
This year will mark the 5th year that PLM has taken part in the event. The first event we held was located on the corner of Mississippi St. and N President St, in Jackson, MS where the glass building which housed the pennies for the Memorial to the Missing once stood that housed 50 million pennies pictured below.
The money was put in a bank account where the Mississippi Baptist Convention and the Christian Action Commission use the interest earned by the money to purchase sonogram equipment for the pregnancy help centers across the state. In place of the glass building they placed a memorial pictured below.
The event has grown over the years and we have relocated to the south grounds of the state capitol building just down from the first location.
