Memorial for the Unborn

Pro-lifers and the curious gathered at the Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St. John, IN, around a solemn statue of Jesus kneeling with open hands in a gesture of mercy for unborn babies. The crowd listened to testimonies and speeches made by women from throughout Northwest Indiana to remember those who have been lost to abortion and miscarriage. Speakers included Deb Revor with a personal story, Jen Mathew, Director of Porter County Right to Life, and Jill McNamara, founder and director of Miscarriage, Mothers and Others. Discussion focused on the need for more support for women who lose their babies for any reason, the right to a proper burial for miscarried and stillborn children, and healing resources for grieving mothers. This beautiful and healing event was organized by Mike Velasco of the Knights of Columbus.
