The following is from an excerpt in the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia’s recent monthly newsletter. You are encouraged to participate in this program.
The Pro-Life Union’s Memorial Cross Program for the unborn consists of a set of 61 white crosses, each representing 1 million abortions since the Roe v. Wade landmark decision in 1973. The memorial crosses do create an impact.
Mothers who have lost a child through abortion have come and placed flowers as a part of their healing. A mom considering abortion called our hotline for help. These crosses are a powerful reminder of the number of children not given the chance to live. The Pro-Life Union will install and remove the crosses. They typically remain in place for one month.
If your parish wishes to display the crosses, call the Pro-Life Union office at 215-885-8150.
