September 18 has been set for National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, when pro-lifers will pray for abortion children and for the women who are terminating their own children.
Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League tells American Family News those babies are cared for by himself and by others when they are recovered, for example, from an abortion clinic dumpster.
“Whenever we find these bodies, however they come into our hands,” he tells American Family News, “we bury them.”
In one current example, Cheryl Lynn Allen with the Pennsylvania Family Institute says a sinister accusation is hanging over the medical school at the University of Pittsburgh. The school is accused of using harvested fetal organs and tissue for medical research --- after the babies are born alive.
"One has to wonder," Allen, an alum of the university, says, "how anyone morally, legally, or ethically can justify this."
Scheidler, a veteran of the pro-life movement, says Day of Remembrance participants don’t have to be a veteran of pro-life activism to host a memorial event in their own community.
“Doesn't have to be extremely complicated,” Scheidler says of a pro-life event. "But whatever degree of comfort you have organizing an event like this, the Pro-Life Action League is there to help with a whole comprehensive set of instructions as well as guided one-on-one help.”
