The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is an opportunity for America to remember the 61 million babies who have been aborted since 1973. Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, the sponsor of the event, says it is also a time for the country to take a step back and take stock of how the sanctioned destruction of human life has affected the culture.

“The National Day of Remembrance calls upon America to mourn for these children, to reckon with the absence that we've experienced because their lives were taken away," Scheidler says. "Their lives were violently and unjustly ended through abortion."

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)The September 12th event is an invitation to anyone who has ever been involved with abortion in any way, "from the mothers who walked through the doors of the abortion center and allowed the abortion to take place, to the fathers who may have paid for those abortions or pushed for them or tried to stop them, to all of us who are complicit or involved in one way or another for abortion -- for us, first of all, to mourn for those children, to take stock of our involvement, and to seek God's healing and mercy," the pro-lifer tells OneNewsNow.

118 memorial services have been scheduled for this year's event so far, with new services being added to the list regularly.
