About the Burial Site of 1,500 Aborted Babies in Dallas, Texas
Day of Remembrance
Saturday, September 9 at 4:00 p.m. (map)
Over 1,500 aborted babies are buried in the Cemetery of the Innocents in Dallas, Texas.
Many of the babies were discovered by pro-life activists in the dumpster of a local abortion clinic in 1984.
The pro-life committee of the Diocese of Dallas hosts a yearly vigil there. At a recent vigil, Bishop Kevin Farrell sent a statement to the faithful in attendance saying:
At the site near which you stand, some 1,300 aborted children are buried. Your presence speaks volumes. It reminds us all that these were real people, who were really killed, and that their bodies deserve the same reverence we give to people in other circumstances.
Your presence is also a reminder of your solidarity with those who grieve the loss of a child by abortion, and a sign that the Church is ready to console them with the healing power of Christ.
Baby Malachi, aborted and buried in Dallas, 1993.
This site is also the burial site of Baby Malachi, one of the subject of one of the most famous photos of an aborted baby ever taken. His image has been used by thousands of pro-life advocates nationwide and has turned hearts away from abortion to choose life!
Malachi was recovered by activist Flip Benham of Operation Save America and was buried in 1993. His name means "Messenger," appropriate since his image has brought the truth about abortion to millions of people across the country.[Back to Top]
