Pro-life advocates will mark September 10 as a day of both celebration and mourning as they remember the 64 million unborn babies who were aborted under Roe v. Wade.
Saturday will be the first National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe and began allowing states to protect unborn babies again. At 213 locations across the U.S., pro-lifers plan to gather at grave sites and memorials for the millions of babies who were killed as a result of the infamous 1973 ruling.
“Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, it’s time to take stock of the deadly impact this ruling had on our nation over the past five decades,” said Eric J. Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, one of the organizations sponsoring the event, in a statement to LifeNews.
The gatherings will include testimonies from women who regret their abortions, reflections by clergy of various faiths, music, prayer, mourning for aborted babies and celebration of the end of Roe.
Through the National Day of Remembrance, Scheidler’s organization, Priests for Life and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society want to remind Americans of the horrors of abortion. The graveside services expose how every abortion results in the death of an unborn child, and that child’s body must be gotten rid of by some means, whether incinerated or thrown in the trash, cut up for scientific experiments or, in some cases, buried.
Citizens for a Pro-Life Society recently buried a second-trimester aborted baby, Gianna-John, whom pro-lifers found in the trash in 2021 outside the Northeast Ohio Women’s Clinic in Cuyahoga Falls.

Like Gianna-John, “tens of thousands of these children have been retrieved and buried at grave sites across our country,” according to the organization. “The stories of how they were killed, how they were found, and how they were buried, along with the images and videos that accompany those events, are powerful tools to awaken the consciences of our fellow citizens.”
Pro-life leaders also hope the day will bring mercy and healing to the tens of millions of mothers and fathers of aborted babies.
Scheidler reminded them of God’s healing mercy, saying, “Healing the wounds of Roe begins with mourning for unborn victims of abortion—for ‘blessed are they who mourn’—and God’s mercy is there for every single woman or man who regrets their involvement with abortion.”
He expressed hope that the National Day of Remembrance, which began in 2013, will continue even in states that now protect unborn babies under the law.
“In fact, pro-lifers in these states are leading the way, showing the entire nation how we must confront all the harm abortion has done to our society—and ask for God’s forgiveness,” Scheidler said. “Only then can we really move on and finally heal the wounds of abortion.”
