Activists Destroy Pro-Life Memorial to Remember Unborn Babiesby Steven Ertelt | Waco, TX | LifeNews.com | 1/29/13 12:19 PM
Pro-abortion activists have destroyed a memorial of crosses set up in a field to remember the 55 million unborn children who have been killed in abortions since Roe v. Wade in 1973.
On Saturday, January 26th, the Rachel’s Park Memorial, was desecrated, according to an email from Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas of Elijah Ministries to LifeNews.
Thomas, who is the founder and director of the memorial, said a report was filed with the Waco Police Department at 11:09 am, by an employee of a neighboring business.
Rachel’s Park Memorial is located at 4720 N. 19th Street in Waco. The park has suffered regular desecration, but this attack was, by far, the most devastating, he said. The spreading display of 4,000 white crosses reinforced with steel rebar was extensively damaged, as was the picket fence enclosing the memorial park.
Thomas provided LifeNews with a photo of the damage, which shows 12 ½ ft by 136 ft cuts through the memorial site, with approximately 600 crosses, rebar, oil, two tires, and parts of a vehicle’s underside littering the park.
Entombed within the park are the remains of a tiny victim of abortion, Thomas added. Thankfully, the main feature of the memorial park, The Tomb of the Unknown Baby, was undamaged.
“It appears the animosity against the preborn knows no bounds. Not only are we content as a nation to stand back and allow the preborn to die through the sin and crime of abortion, but now there are those among us who seek to destroy the very memory of these children as well,” Thomas said. “We pray the Lord will take this desecration and lead justice to victory and those responsible for this evil act will repent, find forgiveness in Christ, and make restitution.”
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Waco Police Department (254) 750-7500 or Waco Crime Stoppers at (254) 753-4357.
