started as a result of prayer for our nation. The damage that abortion has done, whether in our lives or the lives of our family or friends, is deep and wide. When a woman chooses abortion, it is never a good or happy decision, but one which is made out of despair for a better situation. Choosing abortion brings grief, regret, bitterness, and a life-long sadness over what might have been. But there is hope and that hope is in God., He heals, He restores, and He offers forgiveness through His Son, Jesus Christ.
First, they teach generations, both young and old. As places of beauty and remembrance for tiny lives lost, they will help us to once again find our humanity. After WWII, Germans turned concentration camps into memorials. In this way they hoped to have a perpetual reminder of the evils they had allowed. In a similar way, we hope to place plaques of remembrance and build rose gardens and parks in cities all across our nation, sometimes at closed abortion facilities, but also wherever opportunity presents: schools, churches, neighborhoods, crisis pregnancy centers.
Secondly, they will be places of hope and healing. Women who have aborted their babies and others who have been complicit need to be reconciled to God. Scriptures will grace the walls of these quiet places of prayer. A mother, father or grandparent who wishes to remember a child will have that opportunity. And of course, our parks and plaques will connect each visitor to the ministries and resources which can help them.
