CHICAGO – On the heels of last weekend’s hugely successful Nationwide Pro-Life Candlelight Vigil, attended by over 10,000 people at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country, the Pro-Life Action League is organizing another nationwide pro-life event on Good Friday, April 19. The “Way of the Cross for Victims of Abortion” will be held at nearly 100 abortion facilities throughout the United States. The League has coordinated this nationwide prayer service since 2014.

“As a society, we’ve become increasingly sensitive to the victims of injustice, and that’s to our credit,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League. “But we forget about the victims of abortion, starting with the more than 60 million unborn children who have lost their lives to legal abortion in the United States since 1973.”

Scheidler notes that abortion’s victims also include millions of women who have come to regret their abortions, as well as former abortion clinic staff like Abby Johnson, whose sincere desire to help women with untimely pregnancies was exploited by Planned Parenthood, as depicted in the movie Unplanned.

Scheidler continued, “There’s no better day to remember the victims of abortion than Good Friday, when we remember the suffering and execution of Jesus Christ, an innocent man who preached the value of every single human life.”

Thousands of pro-life Christians are expected to turn out for the Way of the Cross services outside abortion facilities in more than 30 states. For many, these solemn prayer vigils have become a central part of their annual Holy Week religious observance.
