NC Needs a Memorial for the Unborn/ Aborted


As some of you may know there is a National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga Tennessee http://www.memorialfortheunborn.org .   And there are other memorial “gardens” or parks in other states. In fact there is a memorial garden in Boone, NC.  And some of our local churches create “seasonal” memorials, such as the grave-yard(s) to the unborn with the little white crosses. These are all wonderful…But we need something more permanent and something that will show the reality of what has been done-the mass murder of innocent preborn babies. It could be a form of both repentence and healing for many people in our state.

I and others want there to be a Memorial to the Unborn in our state’s capital in Raleigh.  Most recent statistics (2005 data) shows that NC makes up approximately 2.5 percent of the national yearly average of 1.3 million ——–http://www.ncrtl.org/nc_reported_abortion_statistics_2005.pdf  In 2005 there were 32,335 abortions performed in NC. And abortion is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the U.S.  Since 1973 when Roe v. Wade nationally legalized abortion on demand, there have been approximately 50 million abortions performed in the U.S. And it continues today to the tune of between 3,500-3,800 abortions performed daily in the U.S.

We are living in the midst of a National Holocaust and we, as North Carolinians, I believe should do something to remember these lost innocent lives.  And perhaps it can serve as a physical reminder of the reality of this tragedy. Perhaps it can even be a warning and prevent more deaths via abortion.

I hope to write to our Governor, Congress-people, and Senators to petition them to create a Memorial to the Unborn in Raleigh. If you feel as I do, please write to me and give perhaps we can work together on this project. Just leave a comment on my blog. And I will get back to you asap.

If we can conceive it we can achieve it!

  1. Wow & Yes I would like to help you! I could not sleep tonight and so I have been doing some research & came along your site. I am An Artist/Sculptor from Reno, Nevada. I have had plans for a major sculptural work. I am creating an Angel series called “Protection”! A Mother angel holding her baby, abstract both born and unborn. I am called to create a real National Memorial for the unborn, a major work that all Americans will want to see for it’s pure beauty and peacefulness, a place to come and pray, reflect, worship and gain strength. A healing place that people of all faiths can come & mediate. I would love to discuss with you exactly how we can accomplish this most important memorial. Thank You for your site
