Pro-lifer with hatPeople will gather at different locations throughout the country this Saturday to remember the children lost to abortion.

"On September 14, we're going to be marking the seventh annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children," says organizer Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League. "This is a day when Americans all over the country at more than 180 locations will go out to mourn the victims of abortion, and many of these memorial services will be taking place at the burial sites of aborted children."

According to Scheidler, there are about 50 of these around the country. In some locations, tens of thousands of abortion victims have been buried.

"We go out to these burial places; we go out to other memorial markers that were set up in remembrance of these children to mourn for their loss," the pro-life activist explains. 

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)And he tells OneNewsNow that participation has increased over the years.

"This year, we've seen a real interest in this issue, I think because so many Americans have thought about abortions this year because of the battles over heartbeat bills in some states like Ohio and Georgia. And we've also seen states like Illinois and New York and others sweeping away abortion restrictions," Scheidler continues. "So as blue states seem to go more pro-abortion and red states seem to be pushing more pro-life, the issue is in front of the public, in front of voters, in front of churchgoers."
