It's a ceremony that goes beyond the buzz words of abortion...
"Who is going to speak up for those that can't speak for themselves?"
In conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a group gathered at the National Memorial for the Unborn.
"We have the service to be that voice for the little ones that were aborted that didn't have the opportunity to speak up for themselves. We also do this to offer a hand of compassion to the post aborted man or woman that might be struggling with their abortion," says Kristin Smith, Board Chair for the National Monument for the Unborn.
Brittany, who didn't want to be shown on camera had an abortion in 2009.
"It does not make them heartless, it most of the time they were in a situation where it just didn't seem possible and 99 percent of the time, every person I've met has regretted their decision afterwards. For the people who are thinking about it, it seems that there are no choices. There are choices, it doesn't matter what the situation is."
A situation you don't have to face alone....
"A lot of times we see it is done out of hopelessness. They don't know where to find help, they don't know where to find hope for their child. You don't have to suffer by yourself, and we are here for you, we love you and we want to help you heal."
