When was the last time you stumbled upon a memorial site for extracted wisdom teeth? Or kidneys?
You haven’t. Because there is no need. We don’t mourn extracted teeth.
But families sometimes (perhaps often?) mourn aborted children.
Online for Life created an abortion memorial site. I just spent some time reading through the tributes for the lost children. They are heartbreaking. Here is some info from Online for Life about the site:
A website is being launched this week to allow individuals who have had their babies aborted a chance to acknowledge and grieve their loss, as well as memorialize the unborn child, without guilt or politics.
Located at www.abortionmemorial.com, the website provides a wall where individuals can post thoughts, poems, images or video – whatever they consider a fitting tribute – to honor the life of the child that could have been. Not only for parents who’ve experienced abortion, but grandparents, siblings and extended family and friends are also invited to post in the baby’s honor, acknowledging the loss that they, too, may feel because of the relationship they would have had with the child.
Abortion isn’t just some other medical procedure. It’s the taking of a life.by
