The numbers are not out yet as to the approximate amount of people who attended the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children in the various locations around the country, but I know if the turn out was as good as the one I attended, it had to be not just a huge success, but a Blessing for all who took part in it and/or attended.
National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children is a joint project of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League. (The aborted babies buried at Assumption Grotto were killed at Women’s Advisory Clinic, Trimester II, Novi Physician Center, and other Michigan abortion clinics now closed) The services at the Assumption Grotto Church and Cemetery was hosted by:
