LAWRENCEVILLE, GA, Jan. 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- In 36 years, 50,000,000 children have died as a result of legalized abortion in the United States. There is no visible monument capable of handling the scope of these deaths. Georgia Right to Life wants to correct this injustice by establishing an Abortion Holocaust Memorial Wall in cyberspace.
Supportpersonhood.com features a short video which introduces the goal of remembering each individual victim of abortion by granting them an identity and providing an epitaph, thereby personalizing their loss.
"Unlike the Jewish Holocaust, there are no pictures of death and destruction to prick our consciences and bring these dark deeds into the light. There is no enduring reminder that these children were our hope and our future," says Daniel Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life, "They are voiceless, faceless and anonymous thereby leaving no lasting impression of their short existence."
The project was inspired by the Veteran's Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. That wall contains 58,000 names and is ten feet in height and five hundred feet in length. Correspondingly, an Abortion Holocaust Memorial Wall ten foot high displaying fifty million names would be over 81 miles in length.
"The purpose of this project is to promote Personhood within our culture," says Becker.
"We need to be a voice for the voiceless and saw this as a way to portray the loss that each individual human life represents. By naming each child, we clothe them in death with the human dignity they deserve," stated Becker.
Individuals are asked to "adopt a child" and provide them an identity and leave a short memorial message. The Wall is searchable and the "adoptions" of others may be viewed.
This project was created by Personhood.net, a pro-life think tank devoted to promoting "Pro-life and Pro-human Policy for the 21st Century."
Proceeds from the project will be used to air Personhood ads. To view the ads, go to Personhood.net/personhood-ads.
Or to satisfy a morbid lust for gore.
Dr. Thomas Hibbs, professor of ethics and culture at Baylor University, has described the "Bodies Exhibit" in NYC as "pornographic."
The same can be said of gratuitous displays of dismemembered infants.
I think this group should sue the Federal Government to force every abortuary to reveal the names of the women who had abortions ever since the Federal Government started subsidizing abortions. Why go virtual, when you can go “real”.....publish every one of their damn names and carve it in marble.
Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes it should.
Sometimes people yapping about the “dignity of human life” treat deceased infants as if they’re marketing materials.
God knows us all by name from the moment of our conception. So, yes this is indeed a good thing to do.
To some, 50 million murdered is a statistic.
I never could understand the screeching against that but then again, we know why, the TRUTH is hard to refute. In today's "scientific" world where kids think they know everything, I'm always amazed at how stupid they really are, or perhaps choose to be.
Yet, my mom and generations before her back to Eve didn't have ultrasound to "confirm" if the baby was really human, so who's really they stupidest now?
