Every day, more than 3,000 children are killed through abortion and their bodies discarded as medical waste.   it's time to honor their lives and give them the dignity that the tragedy of abortion denied them.

On Saturday, September 14, 2019, Right to Life of Northeast Ohio  will sponsor an interfaith memorial service on the 6th annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites and memorials of our aborted brothers and sisters.

 Please join is in a memorial service at 1PM to be held inside the Holy Family Mausoleum near the Memorial to the Unborn at Holy Cross Cemetery in Akron.


Memorial service participants to date include Denise Leipold (Executive Director, Right to Life of Northeast Ohio), Rev. Robert Schneider (The Chapel, Akron OH [retired] and RTLNEO board member), Rev. Lori Porter (The Church, Akron; Love Akron program director), Fr. Matt Byrne (St. Barnabas, Northfield), Representative Bill Roemer (Ohio House District 38 ), Bethany McKenney (Summit County Council District 7), keynote speaker  Christy Ballor  (central Ohio representative for Silent No More campaign), music from Jeff and Kira Andrea, and the honor and color guards from the Knights of Columbus.  Check back soon for more participants as they become available.
