National Day of Remembrance 2015 & 2016


Saturday, September 12, 2015   9:00 AM

American Holocaust Memorial

4829 Bennington Ave, Baton Rouge La.



Joseph of Arimathea followed the sacred law of God and buried Our Lord Jesus Christ in a tomb according to Jewish Law. We will not leave our young brothers and sisters who have been murdered by abortion alone and abandoned. We have also rescued these Holy Innocent from their cruel executioners and given them the dignity and prayers due to them according to God's command; "Bury the Dead!" (A corporal work of mercy!)


Please join us on September 12, 2015 9:00AM at the American Holocaust Memorial, 4829 Bennington Ave, Baton Rouge Louisiana at the site of the Tomb of the Unborn Baby, the Cemetery of the Holy Innocent, The American Holocaust Wall and the Memorial of Rachel Weeping to pray and make reparation for the callous disregard for human life in the womb across America!


Our Lord Jesus Christ "wept" and continues to weep at the callous disregard for human life and the immensity of this holocaust of the Holy Innocent. Let us weep and pray for the end of this Holocaust and earnestly pray for the sincere repentance of our city and our country for their complicity with these crimes!


About the National Day of Remembrance, September 12


On Saturday, September 12, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League are calling on pro-life Americans to participate in a National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children to honor the gravesites of our unborn brothers

and sisters.













Abandoned to a cruel death, they are not forgotten. God is their refuge.


The LORD then said to Abel:


What have you done!

Listen: your brother's blood

cries out to me from the earth!












On entering the death camp, she entered the rooms where tens of thousands of innocent babies

were brutally tortured and murdered. She gazed at the table where the mothers' laid to abort

their children and this is what she saw:


I saw despair lying there; lying there in the faces of women who could not accept love really exists and if it did, it would never exist for them!


I saw anger lying there; life was seen as a loveless,  joyless proposition, whereas murder was even better!


I saw helplessness lying there; helpless women herded toward abortion by family or friends who believed their duty was to allow nothing outside their own pleasure to live!


I saw laughter lying there; the laughter of women who thought life was a joke!


Abortion clinics are the modern day concentration camps where women

are driven by the tide of their own sins, anger, fears and despair.







"The path which moved us from civilization

to savagery occured on January 22, 1973"


A book by Fr. John Powell S.J.




by Monica Miller   Nov 8, 2013 from


In February 2010 Michigan pro-life activist Chris Veneklase decided to take a look in the trash dumpster used by the Womans Choice clinic in Lansing.


He found the remains of 17 aborted babies—killed at the clinic and tossed in the trash.  The date of the abortion, and all of the names of the mothers were written on the medical baggies that contained the tiny dismembered human bodies of these children.  They had all been aborted in January of that year and all in the first 10 weeks of gestation. 




















Chris Veneklase called me, the director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, as I have had extensive experience with the retrievals of aborted babies from clinic trash containers and the burials for these victims of abortion.  


One of the things that I did was photograph the aborted babies Chris had found in the Womans Choice dumpster.  Their photos can seen here


One of the photos was of a tiny arm and hand of a 7 week aborted baby --  torn at the shoulder.


This photo was printed in my book Abandoned—The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars, published in 2012 by Saint Benedict Press.


The manager of a crisis pregnancy center in Milwaukee named Mary Gilpin purchased a copy of Abandoned and kept the book at the CPC.


In October a woman came to the CPC intent on having an abortion. She justified her decision because she was only 7 weeks pregnant – and was convinced that the baby was not formed yet, was not human, that “nothing was there”—thus she was not killing anyone!

Mary opened my book and showed her this photo that I had taken—a photo of one of the babies that Chris Veneklase had retrieved from the trash! The woman was immediately stunned by what she saw—a real hand of a real human being at 7 weeks gestational age! 


The abortion-bound woman changed her mind against having the abortion—and her baby is alive today.


This story bears a few important lessons. Consider the links in this pro-life victory:  


a) First, pro-life activist Chris Veneklase, took the aborted unborn out of the trash


b) Eileen Coleman, another pro-lifer, lent a fine state-of-the-art high definition digital camera to your CPLS director. 


c) Your CPLS director took the photos of the aborted babies.


d) Saint Benedict Press--  a great Catholic publisher-- publishes Abandoned—and agrees to feature abortion victim photos in the book that includes this one of the 7 week aborted baby from the Womans Choice clinic.


e) Mary Gilpin, a long-time pro-life crisis pregnancy counselor shows this photo to a woman who was intent on getting an abortion--




When I told this story to Chris Veneklase—he thanked God for what he called the “symphony of good.”   That is a truly apt description of just what happened here—many people, doing good things worked together in the providence of God to save a baby from abortion.


PLEASE--  ALSO CONSIDER--   How amazing it is that this aborted baby saved another unborn child from suffering the injustice of abortion. The Womans Choice clinic, its abortionist and staff, all who conspired to kill this baby, worked to keep this unborn child forever hidden—consigning this human life to the bottom of a trash dumpster where he or she was meant to be forever lost and dismissed—as if this human being had never existed. 


But because a courageous pro-lifer went into that dumpster to search for the unwanted and the lost, because someone photographed this broken body, because a publisher printed that photo in her book and because a pro-lifer showed that photo in the book to a woman seeking an abortion—this aborted unborn child SPOKE HIS TRUTH—THE TRUTH OF HIS HUMANITY AND THE TRUTH OF HIS EXISTENCE AND CALLED A MOTHER TO HONOR THE LIFE OF HER BABY!  


The Woman’s Choice clinic didn’t win.  Abortion didn’t win.


The “symphony of good” won—and this tiny unwanted unborn child did not die in vain!
