Help Stop Abortion

BY: Virginia Norred


An abortion is when the pregnancy is ended so it does not result in the birth of a child. Sometimes called 'termination of pregnancy'

Sometimes the circumstances surrounding a pregnancy are tragic. Perhaps the woman was raped. However, one tragedy is not answered with another. We do not erase a rape by killing a child. We do not cure a baby by taking his life. And we do not avoid all health issues by avoiding the reality of another human being.

Whom does this affect?

Abortion affects both the baby and the mother. Real-life stories demonstrate again and again that abortion harms women. Harm comes in a variety of forms – mental, emotional, and physical – and in some cases, women’s lives are lost through abortion.

Why should their be a memorial created for Abortion?

I want to create a memorial for this injustice so there can be a place to honor children lost in the womb, and provide a place for healing and encouragement. This memorial would show that the unborn human beings were living, separate, and unique. From the moment of conception, a new human life is in existence. Ending this life is not ending “potential.” It is ending a life. This memorial would be a safe place for mothers, fathers, grandparents, and other family members to remember children who were lost to abortion.

Where should this memorial be placed?

I would place this memorial at a shut down abortion clinic. I would place it here to show mothers, fathers and other family members where abortion happened and that the children that were killed were completely innocent and should never been punished. A child doesn't deserve to die because her mother and/or her father were irresponsible.

What is my hope for this memorial?

My hope for this memorial is to have people believe that having an abortion and ending a child's life will not solve their problems.

In reality, abortion only hides problems-it doesn't solve them. And the truth is better than a lie, when a lie would cost an innocent person’s life.

In the end, that’s what this is really about: our problems are not solved through killing an innocent person. Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right. And just because it’s often a hidden choice doesn’t mean it won’t stay with you forever
