Christmas Caroling at Abortion Facilities

In a move which could be replicated in major cities across North America, the Pro-Life Action League will hold its sixth annual "Empty Manger" Christmas Caroling Day on Saturday, December 20. Two caroling tours will take place, one visiting four Chicago abortion facilities and one visiting four in DuPage County.

"The Christmas story is a story of hope and joy brought into the world by a newborn baby," said League communications director Eric Scheidler. "We want abortion-bound mothers in Chicago and the western suburbs to know that their unborn babies are a gift, too."

The League has saved babies from abortion in past years when their mothers heard the caroling.

"One mother told our counselor that hearing 'Silent Night' made her think about how Mary said yes to God - and then she couldn't go through with the abortion," said Scheidler.

"We encourage more pro-lifers to join this national event," said Scheidler. "Simply print out our booklet and gather a few friends for carols at the abortion facilities in your area."

At each abortion facility on the two tours, pro-life carolers will gather around an empty manger, which symbolizes both the hope that new life can bring as well as the emptiness left behind when an unborn child is killed by abortion.

Since 1973 the Illinois Federation for Right to Life has been working to end abortion and restore legal protection to those members of the human family who are threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Diverse though we are, we hold one common belief - that every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected.
