This memorial is symbolic of the millions of innocent children who have died from abortion. And for their mothers who have experienced the ultimate violence that is abortion.
It represents the unborn child, who dies in terrible but silent agony and the despicable silence of our political representatives who refuse to protect our children and women.
Recording the aftermath of the slaughter of the innocents of Bethlehem by the soldiers of Herod and recalling a prophecy from Jeremiah 31:15
A voice in Rama was heard, lamenting and great mourning; Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
It is nine months by the day and date since I gave my consent to have you aborted. What a terrible, horrific thing to do to you, my beautiful baby girl. I wish now that I could hold you and care for you. Instead all I can do is look back with regret and sadness, thinking about what I did to you, how terribly let down you must have felt. I would love to see your face, just once.
I feel you are so near to me that I could reach out and touch you, other times I feel you would rather have nothing more to do with me. I can't say that I would blame you for hating me and turning your back on me. But I am almost sure that in your childlike innocence you have forgiven me and that hopefully you have started to love me. You were depending on me for your growth and development, until your birthdate, and I acted so selfishly. How I wish I could turn the clock back.
I took the life of my child through abortion. Like many women I did it for the boyfriend; he said do it or get out. The tears I cry are not tears for me. They are for my baby because I took her chance. Not a day goes by that I dont cry and ask myself why I did this. I know my chid is with her maker and she dosen't have to go through the pain life has for her; but, still I had no right to take her right to live. I hope she will forgive me. I hope God will also. This tear is for you my love. I'm so sorry,
Two long years have passed since I walked out of that clinic that took you from me. This would have been your second Christmas on earth. Merry Christmas, my beautiful baby girl. I love you my precious Haley, I love you with all of my heart. I think of you every day, every night, and every time I see a child -- espescially if she has red hair and rosy cheeks. Forgive me for my selfishness. If I had the choice to make again, I would give my own life for you to be here, alive and happy. I hope that you are in God's arms, and I pray that your soul is safe and contented. I love you and miss you. I pray that you can forgive me for taking away your chance to live. It was a mistake that I will regret for the rest of my life. I love you,
